Local leaders and area residents gathered at a newly renovated city park last night to see the unveiling of a project nearly two years in the making.
Four Lakes Park has seen its fair share of construction over the past two years or so, and for good reason. Last night, the city’s Parks and Recreation department debuted a brand new shelter house, resurfaced tennis and basketball courts, a pickle ball court, and additional benches and swings.
Most of the attention, however, was on the brand new spray park between courts.
Parks Superintendent Steve Beaman explains why giving the park such a centerpiece was important.
The baseball-themed park features a number of water spraying devices that will be especially useful as the warm summer months continue. Beaman and other city leaders expressed their approval for all of the park improvements, which they say were sorely needed.
