Exciting projects are happening at Lions Park! The new library at Lions Park, with approximately 23,000 square feet of learning space for children and adults, and the one-acre open space to the north is near completion with a grand opening scheduled for April 26, 2019. A new playground area is also in the planning stages.
The City Council recently authorized staff to initiate the design of improvements to the playground area in the park and the main feature will be a Grumman F9F-2 Panther jet flown by the U.S. Navy in the 1950s. The plane was originally installed in 1960 and will remain as part of the improved playground. This project will provide new play equipment, enhanced play area, landscaping, irrigation, supporting facilities, lighting and concrete pathways.
The city has hosted neighborhood meetings and online surveys to gather input from the community regarding the playground improvements and will implement this information into the design.
