Frank Liske Park Multiple Projects
Department: Active Living & Parks
Function: Culture and Recreation
Project Title: Frank Liske Park Multiple Projects
Status: In Progress
Total Cost: $ 5,000,000
Years Funded: 2022
Future development consists of a water spray ground, additional parking and lighting, water reclamation will be included as well as a concession/restroom facility (2021) and replacing existing boathouse for better service and storage.
Background & Justification/Status
The water spray ground will provide a face lift for the park and enhance quality of life of the citizens by providing a service that was considered the #1 desired amenity from the 2015 Master Plan. Additionally, this would be a revenue producing facility to help offset the operating costs. A study on the facility was performed in 2000 for potential revenue-producing amenities and a spray ground was the number one item identified. The new projects will enhance the quality of life of residents and increase accessibility of services by adding a new amenity. Additionally, the boat dock area will be renovated and additional docks will be added.
Impact If Not Funded and Maximum Time it Can be Delayed
These amenities would provide potential to produce substantial revenue and provide more reasons to utilize the park. Use of the park could drop if no new amenities are added. Many years have gone by without new amenities that can support resident needs. Therefore, the project should not be delayed any further.
