The City of Hickory has a new water splash pad for children thanks to the efforts and funding by the City of Hickory, the Hickory Kiwanis Club and the Western Catawba County Kiwanis Club. The new splash pad was recently named the “Charles D. Dixon Memorial Splash Pad” at Kiwanis Park. At the recommendation of both Kiwanis Clubs and the Hickory Parks and Recreation Commission, the Hickory City Council voted to name the splash pad after Charles Dixon who was an active Kiwanian for over 50 years. He was often instrumental in helping the Kiwanis Clubs raise funds for various service projects in and around Hickory, including the Zahra Baker All Children’s Playground. The “Charles D. Dixon Memorial Splash Pad” officially opens May 1, 2018 and is located at 805 6th Street, Hickory NC.
Mr. Dixon was one of the founding partners of the Firm and practiced law for over 60 years. He passed away in 2016.
