Central Park Improvement Project Details

This project includes improving walking paths, developing a Universal Playground, adding outdoor fitness stations, increasing sustainability practices, and improving the accessibility and safety of the existing ball fields. This project will be funded by capital improvement funds and OSLAD Grant funding. We are seeking private donations to upgrade the creative play area to a Universal Playground.

What is a Universal Playground?
"It’s important to clarify that a Universal Playground is not just a playground for individuals with disabilities,” says Natalie Mackay, founder of Unlimited Play. “This facility would be carefully designed to consider the needs of all people. From parents and grandparents that have limited mobility with typically abled children to families that have a child with special needs, the park would provide a fun, interactive environment where everyone could experience the benefits of play together.”

The park would feature innovative equipment carefully selected to not only meet the unique needs of all users, but to provide opportunities for social and active interaction:

Roller SlideRoller Slide:
Roller slides provide a fun and safe experience for kids with cochlear implants. Kids with cochlear implants cannot utilize regular slides, as the static build-up could damage their implants. Roller sides prevent static build-up!

Roller slides also offer sensory feedback for those with numbness in their lower extremities, helping to develop full-body awareness.

These accessible spinners provide proprioceptive movement experiences and encourage cooperation.

 

 

 

 

The Central Park Improvement Project also includes:

-Central Park walking path improvements
Improvements will focus on better pedestrian safety and circulation throughout the ball field area. It will also provide ADA access to the ball fields. Currently, those requiring use of a wheelchair are unable to access the spectator portions of the field. Access is limited.

-Improved parking
We will add 18 spaces, accessible lot, tennis center overflow lot will be resurfaced. Parking lot will be accessible with direct access to the Universal Playground. Fitness stations will be accessible.

-Accessible Outdoor Fitness Stations

-Green watershed initiatives including Ginger Creek improvements and permeable brick pavers

-Ball field improvements
Improved spectator seating will be incorporated into field one. The field will be enlarged to allow for Pony Level Play and a grass infield will be added. A larger backstop will be installed to improve the barrier between foul balls and spectators. Outfield grading will be completed to achieve better drainage increase player safety.

-Energy efficient lighting improvements
LED lighting will properly illuminate the ball and the playing field to increase player safety. It will also drastically reduce light spillage outside the playing field. Furthermore, LED technology uses less electricity, making the lights less expensive to operate and reduces stress on energy grid. LED technology has a much longer lifespan than traditional HID fixtures which reduces maintenance and replacement costs.  


Family Recreation Center Improvement Projects
Schedule: August 14 - December 1

Project Scope: New community locker rooms have been designed to include 10 private changing rooms. This new facility is designed to accommodate families as well as individuals with special needs or those requiring health aids.

UPDATE: The aquatic center will close on August 14 and is estimated to reopen by September 30. There will be limited access to showers through the end of November and lockers will be located down the Studio Hallway.

Please note: Due to unforeseen and significant deterioration of the shower foundations and surrounding floor areas, the re-opening of the aquatic center has been delayed until September 30.

Tennis Center Improvement Project
Schedule: June 9 - September 29

Project Scope: In an effort to continue to provide the very best tennis experience, we are replacing HVAC, electrical power, and lighting systems and installing an innovative reflective and insulative ceiling system. The project will greatly improve guest comfort, dramatically increase light levels, reduce the facility's carbon footprint, and save on utility costs. During this time, the current offices, front desk, pro shop, and main entrance will be closed.

Disruption to programs and court availability will be minimal. Patrons may enter the building throughout the south patio entrance. Outdoor restrooms, the back lounge, and fitness room will be available. Locker rooms will not be available, but members may utilize the Family Recreation Center.
