The quest to turn downtown McMinnville into a giant water park is inching closer to reality. City officials are in the very early stages of determining what it would cost to transform The Lot into a water area for children.When I say giant water park, that's a bit of an exaggeration. Based on early discussions, the city wants to examine the feasibility of a small splash area with spouts and jets where kids can delight away a little time on a summer afternoon.The idea, as agreeable as it may seem, has drawn a fountain of feedback since we published a front-page article about it last week.
