City Council approved a contract at its Oct. 25 meeting to move forward with improvements to Stark Park.
Stark Park, which is considered a neighborhood park, consists of 5.16 acres of land and is located between Provident Lane and Mills Meadow Drive. Stark Park provides the community with two full tennis courts, along with a full practice soccer field. Repairs will include resurfacing tennis courts, the addition of a looping trail system, ADA repairs and other improvements.
The improvements, which are expected to cost approximately $156,000, are part of the repair and replacement program that was approved by voters in the 2013 bond election. Partners Remodeling, Waterproofing, and Restoration was the low bidder and selected as the contractor to perform the improvements.
Officials with the City’s Parks and Recreation Department held two open houses with nearby neighborhoods and conducted an online survey during the design phase of the project.
