Using General Obligation Bond funding, the former Par 3 Golf Course will be developed into a passive park for community enjoyment and enrichment. Located at 2795 Prairie Avenue, the new park displays the city's commitment to green space while serving as a model of sustainability, stewardship and resilience.
The project will convert the 19.4 acre former golf course into a new community park that will incorporate environmental remediation and a central lake. It will include open meadows and informal open field areas, site grading, a pavilion, six tennis courts with restroom facilities, a children’s playground, dog park, boardwalk and pathways. The park will include new security lighting, a vita course and fitness cluster, butterfly garden, linear water feature and parking lot. The park will contain many resilient improvements, including a stormwater retention system and pervious pavement.
