Bahia Mini Parks Improvements (CIP 15-004)
DescriptionThis project entails renovating and improving two mini parks located on Topaz Drive. Improvements include: clearing the existing sites, landscape grading, construction pathways, wood chips, refurbished lawn, new landscape plantings, benches, pet waste dispensers, bicycle racks, picnic benches, chain link fencing and gates, irrigation and other amenities necessary for a complete renovation. Project also includes new playground equipment at the larger of the two parks.
Both parks are located on Topaz Drive. Park B is across from Malobar Drive and Park C is across from Andale Avenue.
These two mini parks will be a gathering place for kids, families and individuals in the Bahia neighborhood. They will be a place to run and play outdoors, which supports the City's Healthy Eating Active Living initiative. The renovation will provide a quiet place to enjoy the outdoors and an active place for kids and the community to connect.
Construction began in October 2016. Originally scheduled to open in late February 2017, heavy rains have delayed work. Once work begins, and pending drier weather conditions, construction will take approximately four to six weeks to complete.
