If Tom Hanks decides to make a sequel to his blockbuster “Big,” maybe the kid who suddenly becomes as big as an adult will be the mayor of Avondale

And maybe he will look at the city’s robust bank account and say, “Let’s spend like $20 million for a huge thing that has a splash park, a skate park and all kinds of fun things so kids don’t get bored.”

For the actual mayor of Avondale, this isn’t a fantasy — it’s really happening.

 Avondale spent $19 million to renovate the 30-acre Festival Fields Park, which will now have a fishing lake, splash park, skate park, pump track, play courts, multi-use fields and more.
