The City of Novi is moving forward with plans to open a new splash pad at Bosco Field in honor of the late Fox 2 meterologist Jessica Starr.

Jessica Starr was a Novi resident and mom of two when she died in 2018. To honor her memory and provide away for local families to make new memories together, her family developed a plan with the Novi Parks Foundation to build a new splash pad at Bosco Field that includes weather-themed features. After nearly two years of fundraising the plan is moving forward with an expected open date of 2024.

Watch the video below to learn more about Jessica and inspiration behind the new community amentity.

No need to wait to visit Novi, here are the top activities to do with kids.

  • Lakeshore Park: A summer must, this kid-friendly beach is perfect for families. The playground is a top pick year round too.
  • MSU Tollgate Farm: This local farm offers free admission and is open daily from 9am to 8pm.
  • Ella Mae Power Park: the universally accessible playground is fun for all and located next to the Novi Public Library.
  • Paradise Park: Find all your outdoor activities in one place – miniature golf, outdoor trampolines, go-karts, balloon drop tower and climbing wall. 
  • Launch Trampoline Park: Stay inside and let the kids bounce off someone else’s walls. Launch is more than a trampoline park it also has adventure courses that you won’t find elsewhere.
