The town of Princeton will be purchasing a property at 3133 Lytle St. in order to expand the neighboring Mary Moss Park, the Times of Trenton reported.
The town will spend about $600,000 to purchase and destroy the property, which will then be incorporated into the park. The park is set to expand by 60 percent.
The current plan is to turn the wading pool into an interactive "spray ground" with water fountains and jets for children, Recreation Department Executive Director Ben Stentz said.
"My number one priority is to see what the neighborhood and community would like to see there," Stentz told the Times. "I'm looking forward to that."
Princeton Mayor Liz Lempert said construction should begin this fall and be completed by the summer of 2016.
"It comes at a really opportune time because the [Recreation] Department is in the process of making improvements to the park, and by adding this extra land, they're going to be able to do a really exciting redesign there," Lempert told the Times.
