Franklin Square Improvement Project

Franklin Square Existing Site

The new adult workout area is a request from the Friends of Franklin Square, who unsuccessfully applied for a COF award and then sought other sources to implement multiple community initiated improvements.  The scope of work for this improvement was as confirmed by the community at the 2/24/16 neighborhood meeting.

Planned Improvements

Lighting and Equipment

The project received $120K Eastern Neighborhood Benefit Funds for the improvement costs which includes a two-level parallel horizontal bar, parallel bars, horizontal ladder.

Because of little illumination along the western area of the park, the community requested several lights along this edge. With $25K funded by the Supervisor’s Office, several lamp fixtures will be attached to the athletic field fence poles illuminating the west path and patch of green.

Field Replacement

The field was replaced in early 2017 and is now open to the public.


The project received Rec and Park Commission Approval in 2017 and will be bid early 2018 to complete construction later in 2018.
