ELM CREEK PARK RENOVATIONS:
Over the last five (5) years, the City has been evaluating solutions to the erosion and deterioration of portions of the Elm Creek Park pond.
We examined a variety of possibilities, knowing it is imperative we address these challenges for long term stability.
Furthermore, the City’s master plan includes a renovation of the Elm Creek playground. Due to the age of the current playground equipment, as well as safety concerns, we believe it is in the best interest of the City as well as all park patrons to remove the existing playground equipment. The playground equipment will be replaced with a more modern, upgraded feature.
We are excited to announce that we have begun the renovations to Elm Creek Park. For safety reasons, Elm Creek Park will be closed for the duration of the renovations!
On October 13th, the bank stabilization project commenced. We expect that portion of the renovation to be completed sometime in January of 2021.
We are currently preparing to go out to bid for the upgraded playground feature as well as a new shelter. The southern parking lot will also be renovated and double in size. We will keep you informed on the projected dates of this portion of the project, however, our goal is to have the the playground, shelter and parking lot renovations completed by late Winter or early Spring.
