One of our roving correspondents sent in photos of some of the great upgrades that have been completed at Poinsettia Park. The city is putting more than one million dollars into improvements at the park, and everything should be completed by this spring.
The new outdoor exercise equipment is being well used:
The turf on the fields have been completed re-done, and is currently fenced off until all of the grass grows in:
The new baseball field dugouts and bleachers are installed:
As we previously reported, the new children’s playground turned out beautifully, and it’s popular:
The gym floor is shiny and new:
The basketball courts have been re-configured, and there are now two new full-size courts, and one new half-size court:
New park benches are in place and looking snazzy:
The center alley through the park (north-south) has been repaved:
The sidewalk into the park, by the tennis courts (east-west), is now brand new:
One of the projects still underway is the new Community Room attached to the gym:
Overall, the park hasn’t looked this good in decades. Use it – it’s your park!
