Central Park is Now Open
Central Park's main field area, the play structure and the tennis courts are now open!
We appreciate your patience in this process. Many people have asked what took so long, and the short answer is that the recovery planning, testing, inspection, and insurance carrier assessments had to be done before electricity could be reconnected. This all had to be accomplished before the temporary fencing could be removed.
While the fencing has been removed from around most of Central Park, the Community Center site remains enclosed with construction fencing, some of which overlaps the path around the west side of the park. There will be further adjustments to this side as the City moves closer to demolition of the burnt-out building. In the interim, the health and safety of our community park users is the top priority.
Again, we appreciate your patience throughout the recovery process, and are happy to announce the re-opening of Central Park.
