Construction has begun on the next phase of the renovation of the Summit Avenue Park.

A backhoe and piles of sand have taken up residence to do initial site work for concrete walks, logs, a bridge, boulders, a log tunnel, bench and sandbox. Also coming are a Little Library, a tree, playground mulch and painting, according to Wendy Nilsson, city parks superintendent.

The original schedule was for the park to be closed until Aug. 21, when the preliminary work was supposed to be finished, but obviously things happened. New equipment is on the way and was scheduled to be installed by mid-September. Then new grass will be planted.

The Parks Department apologized for having to close the facility while work is in progress, but the tight space raises serious safety concerns.
