McLaren Park Playground and Group Picnic Area Renovation was advertised to potential contractors, and the project bids are due today! There will be a public bid opening, followed by a certification of the results by City staff. The project is anticipated to go before the Rec & Park Department Commission for contract award in December 2018. Construction is still planned to start in Spring 2019.
Tree removals within the Group Picnic Area and adjacent park areas will happen by the end of January 2019. The trees and shrubs to be removed were posted with notices in late October. Photos of some of these notices can be seen below. See the FAQs for more information on the removals.
