Why is Kalithea Park Closed?
Renovation Update

Kalithea Park is closed for renovation work. All updates about this and other CSD property & projects are posted by the CSD. If you've been hearing others giving updates on the CSD's behalf, then make certain you come to the source to get the facts, www.edhcsd.org or on our social media platforms.


For Kalithea, the District will be completing some form of turf renovation once the soils analysis and recommendation for improvement is complete, an irrigation audit, drinking fountain replacement, landscaping updates, playground inspection along with any work needed upon inspection. No timeline for reopening has been established at this time, and we may adjust the project scope even further, so stay tuned for updates via social media and our monthly newsletters.
