This is a large community/school park. The park is located in the western portion of the City. The site features numerous slopes that are conducive to winter sports activities. Open play field areas are extensive. A portion of the park's hilltop is a natural wooded area. Existing facilities include tennis courts (10) with lights (8), park shelter (also serves as a warming house), a softball diamond, parking lots, wooden toboggan runs (2), soccer fields, sledding/snowboarding hills, and ice skating rink. Landscape planting was completed on the hillside to create designated sledding areas.
|Potential improvements include: |
1. Evaluate winter use of northern slope, in particular the former ski run area.
2. Bury overhead electrical wires.
