TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — The town of Hulbert is getting a new splash pad thanks to a donation Wednesday from the Cherokee Nation.

The splash pad will be located at the Hulbert City Park on Main Street. City officials have begun the planning process and hope to begin construction later this year.

“The town of Hulbert is really thankful for the donation and appreciates the Cherokee Nation thinking of our community,” said Shirley Teague, mayor of Hulbert. “There are so many things that we would not be able to do in our little town if not for the generosity of the Cherokee Nation. This splash pad will be unique for the kids of Hulbert and I am so glad that we are able to provide it for them.”

Cherokee Nation Tribal Council Speaker and Hulbert resident Tina Glory-Jordan donated the $25,000 from Tribal Council district improvement funds.

“It is always important for the Cherokee Nation to be a good partner with all our communities,” said Glory-Jordan. “District improvement funds allow our tribe to share in our prosperity with other governments and organizations in our jurisdiction. Projects, like the Hulbert splash pad, not only provide financial relief for the city governments and organizations, but also provide a safe and fun place for Cherokee and non-Cherokee citizens.”
