Current Status:

  • While the southern portion of the park is under construction, that area is off limits to the public.
  • The majority of the park property, including the off-leash dog area, remains open to the public and is accessed via the gravel parking lot at the intersection of Admiralty and Manor way.
  • Matia Contractors is conducting the park improvement work.
  • Construction work began approximately August 2017
  • Fine grading, drainage and concrete work is 90% complete.
  • Soil amendments, boulder & log placement and irrigation are underway.
  • Trees and plants shall be installed immediately after irrigation.
  • Play areas shall remain only partially installed until immediately prior to opening to the public.
  • Existing boulders, root wads and extra logs that were gathered from on-site during clearing and grading are being reused in the park or elsewhere within the Parks system.

What’s Next:

  • Site refinements and installation of furnishings in Jan/Feb 2018.
  • Parking lot repaving and completion of play equipment installation in Mar/April 2018.
  • Ribbon cutting anticipated spring of 2018.
