This announcement is from Wendy Nilsson, the city’s parks superintendent.
Hi Summit Park Friends,
Good news . . .construction for the site work [concrete walk, logs, sandbox, playground mulch, bridge, boulders, log tunnel (new) Little Library, tree, bench and painting] at Summit Avenue Park will begin on August 15th and is expected to be completed by August 21st. Once the new equipment and parts arrive (ETA early to mid-September), those pieces will be installed. This plan will allow us to plant grass around the play house rather than a synthetic turf or mulch.
From 8/15-8/21, the park will be closed as there will be heavy machinery in and out. Please access the community garden from the garden’s service gate. I know we originally thought we could do this in phases and leave the park open, but that is no longer an option due to the tight schedule. Sorry for any inconvenience. We will provide a sign for the park for the temporary closure.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
