High View Park Improvements. Last Chance to share your opinion!
More improvements are headed to High View Park. We’ve gotten great feedback about the possible improvements from our community survey! Please help us be sure we are on the right track.
As you may know, Parks Maintenance Capital Program has funding to add more improvements to High View Park. The improvements include beautifying the entrance from N. Dinwiddie Street with new pavement and landscaping. The entrance will welcome park users and lead them to a new picnic structure with picnic table and benches. A few steps away, park users will enjoy new restrooms and storage facilities. If users want to access the basketball courts they can take the new stairs which improve access and safety. If watching a game is your thing, you can sit on the new bleachers facing the courts. Other improvements to the park include new stairs, walkway and black vinyl chain link fence and gates along the park on N. Cameron Street. The existing grass field will be re-graded, re-sodded and an irrigation system installed, helping to extend the life of the field. Field users, adjacent neighbors to the park and nocturnal creatures will greatly appreciate the new field lights which comply with the ‘Dark Sky’ technology. Dark Sky lighting is a method or technique of installing light fixtures that save energy, reduce light pollution and glare. The light fixtures focus downward and illuminate only the areas that need light. *For a closer view, see enlarged area image below (2nd image).
