Vote for Veterans Memorial Park design elements

Post Date:11/20/2018 11:05 AM

Since it opened in 1971, Veterans Memorial Park (6015 Forest Drive) has never had a major renovation. The park is an important gathering place next to Eagle Pointe Recreation Center and located near many residences.

A master plan for a new park layout includes elements such as a new playground, perimeter walking path, safety lighting and picnic facilities (including large shelters, benches, bike racks, and a drinking fountain). To be consistent with the recently renamed Eagle Pointe Recreation Center, the renovated park will have an eagle/bird theme.

Residents have until December 7 to vote on potential designs for the playground, picnic shelters, benches, etc. An open house is being held on November 28 to obtain input on the park elements. For those unable to attend the meetings, voting ballots will be available online and at the civic center and recreation centers.

Voting results will be used to finalize the designs and will be available to the public this winter at and at the recreation centers. Construction on the project is expected to begin in 2019.
