More Improvements Coming to Prospect Park


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.

A contractor will be on site, April 5, 2018, to begin installing the silt fence for the upcoming athletic field grading and playground improvement project at Prospect Park.  On Monday, April 9, 2018, the construction fencing will be installed and work will be ongoing as the weather allows for about 5 or 6 weeks with an expected completion date of May 18, 2018.  During the construction, portions of the parking lot may be temporarily unavailable and some of the walkways will need to close intermittently.  We appreciate your patience during this time


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.
