The scope of the work includes two phases, Infrastructure Improvements and the Playground Installation. These items will occur during the Infrastructure Improvements phase:

  • Expand the landscaping wall and the landscaping from the south end of the park to the north end of the park.
  • The public parking lot between Gabby’s and the park will be expanded to include additional handicap accessible parking spaces as well as additional regular parking spaces.
  • A new irrigation system will be installed to support the existing two soccer fields. This will keep the playing fields nice and green
