PROJECT TITLE: Parks - West Side Park
DEPARTMENT: Parks and Recreation
BUDGET CODE: CFP-PRK-00015
JUSTIFICATION: Improves existing service
START DATE (FY): TBD
END DATE (FY): TBD
Our goal is to add another west end neighborhood park that will provide this section of town with a playground and other amenities. It will be limited by the size of the lot identified at West 6th Street and Minnesota Avenue for the park location. Tursi Park is similar to what could be designed here. We would hold community meetings to take input on the best design for the neighborhood.
Build new neighborhood park at West 6th and Minnesota through grants, community donations and city funds.
PROJECT OBJECTIVES / STATUS:
The west streets have limited parks and playgrounds within walking and biking distance given the increasing density of this neighborhood. The Community Forest Lands do offer recreational opportunities, but they lack the playgrounds and other amenities found in a more traditional park.
Operating impacts to be determined in the future.
