Lincoln School Park Renovation
Construction Planned for Summer 2020
We have made the difficult decision to postpone the Lincoln School Park renovation construction work until the summer of 2020 in order to preserve the integrity of our design choices and create a park that meets the needs of the community.
Here’s What is Coming Next Year:
- All new playground equipment
- New lighting
- Paved pathways
- New benches, bike racks and drinking fountain
- Adult exercise area
- Basketball court resurfacing
- Expanded community garden
Based on feedback received from Workshops #1-3, Surveys #1-3, staff review and budget estimates, we have come up with a final concept as shown in the link below. Thanks to everyone who provided input!
The adult exercise area has been relocated in order to provide greater separation from the play area and to eliminate impact on the mature maples. There has been some interest in placing the equipment closer to the street for joggers. This equipment area location will also provide some backup for loose basketballs rolling into the street. There will not be any seating associated with this area and it should not be a factor for additional noise at night.
In order to stay within our budget, the sand play and adult exercise areas are currently optional and may or may not be included in the final construction.
Based on the overall feedback for this neighborhood park, we will not be including a concrete ping pong table, outdoor cell phone charging station or setup for a badminton net. We will try to keep as much irrigated green turf space open as possible for freestanding nets or general use for other informal play.
