Creek View is a mini park that services a neighborhood with underserved populations. It is located along the scenic Rice Creek West Regional Trail corridor but only has foot paths down steep slopes to access the trail. The site is very sandy with areas of erosion. 

Improvements

General recommendations include redevelopment with some minor layout modifications to incorporate new amenities, replace existing and create an improved access to the regional trail. 

Recommendations include: 

  • Replace playground equipment with potential more unique pieces for a broader range of challenge levels
  • ADA compliant playground surfacing
  • Concrete playground border 
  • Added internal concrete loop walks 
  • Regional trail connection
  • Replace basketball court as necessary with smaller court overlays (hopscotch, 4-square)
  • Small arbor or picnic shelter with two tables and outlet
  • Wayfinding signs & No Parking signs
  • Security light
