Veterans Park (formerly known as Village Pond Park) is nearly complete and almost ready to reopen for the public after more than a year of redesigning, draining and installing.
Construction crews have been busy reshaping the pond, reinforcing the wire mesh and pouring concrete to create the pond. This concrete pond bottom is coupled with a new liner as well as an aeration system to improve water quality and safety.
Not only will the new and improved park feature the 1-acre pond but it will also proudly honor the five branches of military service with a new monument –living up to the park’s new name. The design artwork and renderings can be seen below.
This project is the first major improvement at the park in the last 40 years. The City will hold a grand opening and re-dedication for the 4.7-acre Veterans Park this Fall.
