WHAT's New In Parks:

The Parks Department has been busy working on the Bandit Ball Little League fields at the Community Park. All signage has been inspected and those in need of repair have been replaced making it easier to identify the ball fields. New gravel pads were added to increase the stability of the bleachers that were completely rebuilt throughout the winter. The bleachers now meet the height requirements established by the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission). The team has also corrected multiple safety issues within the dugouts and along the fence lines of each field. Finally, the team reconstructed a dugout that was destroyed during this past January windstorm.

Parks, a park system, and connectivity between parks within a community are a key element for the “quality of life” of a community. Parks provide recreation, stress relief, physical fitness, socialization, and growth and development opportunities for the community. Thus, the City has made it a goal to improve the park system throughout the community.

The first goal is the creation of a single major park within the City.  This is planned to by the redevelopment and expansion of “Community Park” which is commonly referred to as the Banditball Fields.  The first step was the replacement of outdated playground equipment with a new playground feature installed in 2019.  The second step was the acquisition of an additional 28 acres of undeveloped land immediately west of the “Community Park”.  The next step will be a Master Planning process to determine community needs and set goals to meet these needs followed by a city-wide plan to meet the reported needs starting with the “Community Park”.    Connectivity or a trail system connecting the city’s parks will also be addressed within the planning process.
