Park Improvements

Upgrades completed

Kelly Park was upgraded to a completely ADA accessible park in 2018. A new pavilion, playground, basketball court, benches and widened sidewalks were also added to the park.  A very special thank you to the neighbors who helped lead and invest in this project. All of the community partners and contributors helped to make this park project become a reality.

Even though important projects are complete, more work is still being conceptualized for Kelly.
