Optimist Park Playground Renovation
- Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources (Lead)
- Stewart Design
The playground project is currently in the final stages of design. We have received excellent support and feedback from the neighborhood at the Design Workshop held on February 18, as well as ongoing citizen committee meetings. Final design is scheduled for completion in July 2017.
Each year funding is earmarked for the renovation of playgrounds throughout the city, and Optimist Park has been identified as the next priority project. A group of 6 volunteers representing the neighborhood has volunteered to assist in the design of the playground. Stewart Design is the landscape architecture consulting firm for the project.
