ScreenHunter_54 Aug. 16 08.48.jpgThe largest project identified in the 2015 Park Bond was the renovation and upgrades at the Charles Black Center and LaSalle Park. The renovations will add a 50% increase in square footage of the Charles Black Center which will provide more room for storage, three practice basketball courts, an expanded fitness center, a performance platform, new HV/AC systems, a concession area, locker rooms, and a bike repair shop.

There will be some landscaping work done around the building and in the park.  The soccer fields at LaSalle Park will also have irrigation installed and a large pavilion is planned to be placed.
