Ramsden Park Construction Update

 

Construction on Phase 1 of the Ramsden Park Revitalization is nearly complete! 

The asphalt tennis courts have been constructed and all the walkways/ walls have been completed.  The weather is currently too hot to install the landscaping.  If the trees, shrubs and sod were installed under these conditions, they would immediately become stressed.  Once the current heat wave is over, the landscaping installation will commence.  We anticipate the tennis courts will be opened to the public by mid-August, weather permitting. 

Construction on the new playground/wading pool/splash pad/shade structure is ongoing.  All the underground utilities have been installed, as has a portion of the play apparatus.  The concrete for the wading pool has been poured and the water spray jets have been installed.  Construction of the shade structure is to commence in the coming weeks.  It is anticipated that this area will be completed in the fall of 2016.
