Park Improvements

Basketball Court & Playground completed

A full court basketball court and a modern playground were installed at Kennedy Park in Summer 2016. The playground features a 360-degree playable design allowing kids to use every inch of the Explorer Dome. The Rotary Club assisted in finishing the basketball courts after a neighborhood resident approached the Rotary Club seeking assistance with the project. A new pavillion is also planned.

Park Amenities conceptual

Addition of pavilion structures, additional grills and picnic surfaces are to be incorporated.
