New Playground Coming to Centennial Park

As part of improvements to Centennial Park that began in 2020, we are adding a playground to better serve the needs of the surrounding neighborhood and community, as well as foster imagination and fun for all visitors. This playground is part of the city’s continued mission to improve the quality of life for residents. Currently, the park’s amenities include tennis courts, a baseball field, and a skate park.

Project Overview

The city will be building a new playground and installing landscape in the surrounding area and would like the community’s input on the type of grass and equipment they would like to see in the new area.

Project Progress

In 2020, the city began with general park improvements to Centennial Park to update overall accessibility which included new walking paths and internal roads, parking lot expansions, landscape improvements, and new storm water management features.

The survey for the new playground and landscaping options will remain open for a few weeks to provide the community time to share their input. Once the survey results are collected and reviewed, the city will meet with the design company to start planning and developing the new Centennial Park playground.

Project Timeline
The Centennial Park improvements will continue into 2022 with more path connectivity, new shade shelters, and the new playground.

  • Fall 2021 - Launch community survey for playground equipment input and surrounding landscape preference.
