Millions in Parks and Recreation Improvements

“Parks make life better! These projects will improve the playgrounds and community centers that make our parks such enjoyable places,” Mayor Patricia Lock Dawson said.

Parks projects included in the most recent allocation of ARPA funds to include  an additional $3 million for a gymnasium construction project at Bordwell Park for a total of $8 million; and $10 million for playground resurfacing at 15 parks, replacing playground equipment at 7 parks, repairs to the heating and air conditioning systems at 10 park buildings, parking lot repairs at 7 parks, and replacing floors in 3 community centers across the city.  For the full list, go to view the City Council Memorandum.

The Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department is looking for the input of Residents within these park communities to help determine the look, functionality, and presence of the new playgrounds within their neighborhood parks.
