Picnic Pavilion • New Playground • Field Opening

More Improvements Coming to Prospect Park


Week of July 31 - We are awaiting permit approval from the City and Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD). Once received, excavation will begin.

May 18 – Board approved the purchase of the playground.  The playground selected was in direct response to the 386 patrons complete our survey. The playground selected was the overwhelming winner! We asked respondents to rank their top 3 choices out of 9 options. 67.7% chose this option as their #1 choice, and 93.8% chose it as one of their top 3 picks. We anticipate the project to be completed by the end of the summer/early fall.


The Prospect Park Pavilion is now completed and available for rentals.  With access to the Splash Pad, playground, and athletic field, Prospect Park is a great place to spend your day.
