Size: 14.18 Acres

Facilities: Play apparatus, jungle gym, swings, and a small hard court area. A large open play area is located between the school and an adjacent residential neighborhood. The ice rink is maintained by the city in the winter and the open area is used for flag football in the fall.

Service Area: The park serves the immediate neighborhood. Ball diamonds are used by university students in the fall.

Natural Features: Open/few trees, flat, and has sandy soil.

Maintenance: Maintenance is conducted as required. Little has been done to improve the appearance. Shrubs and trees are old and a replacement planting program should be established.

Access: Vehicular and pedestrian access.

Development Plan: The park is a pleasing open space in an older residential neighborhood, an attractive amenity. There is a need for additional trees and landscaping. Potential lighting may be added as well as a drinking fountain and a shelter with restrooms. Plans have been developed for the redevelopment of the playground facilities.
