Imagine yourself here, chatting with neighbors, reading a book and enjoying the scenery and skyline.
We want to add a seating area in the northwest corner of the park.
Those of you who have lived in the neighborhood for a long time may recall there used to be a tennis court on this spot. It received little use and fell into disrepair. Eventually the City removed it. Today this area is little used. That's a pity because this area of the park is really special. Perched on a high spot, it offers wonderful views of our park and the skyline.
Our goal is to better utilize the 50' x 125' long area that used to be the tennis court and dedicate about 1/3 of it as a permanent (ADA accessible) seating area with chairs and tables. With its commanding position looking out over the pool, field and skyline, this would be a relaxing place to sit and chat with neighbors, read a book or holster your phone and simply contemplate how lucky you are to live here! We also want to plant a row of shade trees on the west side along Maufrais Street and make this a truly bucolic place to hang out. The rest of the space would be dedicated to a petanque court which you can read about here.
