development, landscape screening, parking, pond/dam reconstruction, restroom/storage building,
picnic pavilion, and a dog park.

Phase 2 will begin immediately and will include; installation of a dock, gazebo, walking trails,
and disc golf. This phase is programmed in the city’s Capital Improvement Budget.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony for another greenspace community asset will celebrate the
transformation of a once-potential big-box commercial development site into a beautiful passive
park recreation amenity that can be enjoyed by the entire community for generations to come.

“Activating new greenspaces continues to be a priority of our mayor and city council. With
Ridge Lake Park, families, community members, and even our four-legged friends, can come
together to enjoy everything the sweet life offers,” said Councilmember Jenn Thatcher.
