The $4.8-million Battleground Parks District construction at Country Park is about to begin.
City voters approved Parks and Recreation bonds in 2016 to redevelop one of the city’s busiest parks as part of the joint tourism campaign, the Battleground Parks District.
The project will add Parks and Recreation’s first zipline over Sloan Lake, skywalk pathways in the trees, a new promenade area for events, an additional picnic shelter, and restrooms. The dog park will be moved near the Lawndale Drive park entrance, next to a new ADA accessible parking area.
Construction is expected to be complete in 2022.
