Document Description
The 8' wide trail will be constructed with an all weather surface and has been designed as a loop around the park. Two picnic areas will be developed; one near the Pope Street pedestrian access point and the second near the access drive off of College Avenue. Both picnic areas will include 8' picnic benches placed on stabilized decomposed granite pads and will include the planting of several native tree species. The second picnic area will be slightly larger and will include a simple shade structure and additional tree planting. The primary objective of the project is to provide the community with a passive recreational area within an underutilized city owned parcel. The city is underserved parks in general and passive parks specifically as active recreational facilities (like bocce ball courts and the skate park) have replaced much of the passive areas in the city's existing parks. The entitlements requested for the project include Design Review for the construction of the passive recreational facilities.
