I was at a softball tournament recently at Brooklawn park and saw mounds of dirt and some heavy machinery. When more than a couple of people asked me what was going on, I decided to find out.

According to a city official, the project at Brooklawn Park will transform the wading pool into a great lawn and parking area. The great lawn will provide a space for family and community activities.  The parking area will create parking near the Community Center and away from areas where children are playing.  New perimeter trees and planting beds will complete the project.  The project will be completed this fall.

I'm looking forward to it and hope there is a grand opening event in the fall.
