Northside Park Construction Update

If you've been to Northside Park or the Senior Recreation Center recently you're aware that work to improve the park is in full swing. We will continue to keep you informed about the project's progress so you'll know what to expect on your next visit.

As part of the parking lot expansion work, approximately 8 parking spaces will be blocked off for the next few days for drainage upgrades. Please be assured that the stormwater pond near the parking area of Northside Park will not be impacted. The pond, which houses a wonderful abundance of wildlife, has been protected so that the habitat will not be disturbed.  Water is being pumped only from an underground stormwater structure which lies beneath the parking lot. The Senior Recreation Center will remain open during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience. 
The project is currently on schedule to complete in April of 2020. 
This project is being funded with the Wild Spaces & Public Places half-cent sales tax along with a sponsorship from the Rotary Clubs of Gainesville Foundation . The Wild Spaces & Public Places sales tax will continue to create, improve and maintain parks and recreational facilities and acquire and improve environmentally-sensitive lands.
