Construction work is scheduled to begin at Lafayette Park during the week of June 4. Fencing may arrive as early as Monday. I know everyone will be sad to see the park close for the 10 month construction period, but I am sure it will have been worth the wait when we cut that ribbon in April 2013. Throughout the construction process, progress photos and updates will be posted here.
FYI. A small area for dog walking will remain open for public use throughout the project. This area will be located near the corner of Laguna Street and Washington Street. The exact location and size may change to allow work to be performed in all areas before the contract is complete.
While Lafayette is closed, those seeking natural recreation should check out Alta Plaza Park, located 4 blocks west of Lafayette Park at Washington Street and Steiner Street.
