Current Status

Demolition of the existing playground equipment is anticipated to begin late August. The new equipment and picnic shelter will be installed immediately after removals with construction of the new walkways, seating areas, accessibility improvements, basketball court and other sitework to begin in late September. Given the nature of the work and heavy equipment used, the park will remain closed during construction for safety purposes. Substantial completion is expected by late October. An update will be provided later this fall as to when we can expect it to reopen.

  • Site furnishings with common characteristics (benches, tables, receptacles, bike racks, etc.)
