Pathways for Play®
Dog Park Expansion and Relocation
North of the existing softball diamonds, across Chase Street, two VersaCourt outdoor basketball courts will be installed. Providing the perfect balance of performance and durability, every VersaCourt system is engineered to stand up to commercial traffic and last for decades to come.
Wetlands provide critical habitat, breeding grounds and sources of food for local wildlife. They help control erosion, limit flooding, moderate groundwater levels and base flow, assimilate nutrients, protect drinking water sources, and buffer coastal areas from storm surges.
Spending time in a contemplative garden can assist in disconnecting and unplugging from the busyness of modern life; it can help one slow down and just be. Enjoying the sights, sounds and fragrances of nature. This relaxation spot will provide an ambiance unlike any of our other parks.
The proposed development includes just under two miles of multi-use trails. A multi-use trail design provides a free means of healthy exercise. A safe space is given to children, cyclists, and other pedestrians to travel without fear of traffic dangers or the growing cost of vehicular transportation.
