The RAP proposes to cap burn ash/dump debris containing contaminated soils at Watson Park and Empire Gardens Elementary School in order to protect public health and the environment. Once site soils have been capped, the Master Plan would be implemented. The Master Plan proposes to construct new and reconfigured recreational facilities at the park to provide community and neighborhood recreational services.
