Scheid Park 

Most of the planned improvements are complete. The improvements include park shelter roof replacement, a new gazebo near the playground, drainage/stormwater improvements, and a new outdoor skating area and hockey rink. All outdoor park lighting has been updated with LED fixtures and internal park trails have been refreshed. The tennis/pickleball hybrid courts are in process and scheduled to be completed in spring 2024.

Yosemite Park

The play structure and shade structure have arrived and are waiting for installation. Due to heavy rains and snow, the installation contractor is behind schedule. If the weather becomes too cold before the end of the year, the play structure will be installed in spring 2024.
