City officials have announced a public meeting, 6:30 p.m. Thursday July 14 in City Hall, regarding the continued planned development of Oak Road Neighborhood Park.
City officials and park planners Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood will be on hand to review the latest draft of the park design. Residents can ask questions and give their input regarding the look and use of the park.
The Oak Road Park has always been planned as a passive, neighborhood park with no public parking. It’s designed to be used by residents of the surrounding neighborhoods. The sidewalks that are currently being built on Oak Road will make access easier for more people.
Plans call for a picnic shelter/pavilion, a quarter-mile walking trail, a drinking fountain for people and dogs and a small landscaped green space near the shelter. All city residents are invited to attend.
