Ridge Lake Park. The construction has begun for the new park that will be on the 22 acres the city owns off Highway 20. Consisting of a parking area, rest room building with covered seating area, a dog park, pond improvements and trails; it will be the newest place to relax and unwind. Groundbreaking was held on November 29th. Many of the amenities in the park were suggested by the public during open houses that we held in 2017 and 2018.
Grading work is well underway. Underground plumbing and electrical services have been installed. The concrete slab and footings have been poured. Walls and roof construction has begun. Also, work has begun on the dam repair for the lower and upper pond.
Bowl Pond Improvements. Intended to make this amenity more stable and usable, these improvements include replacing the failed outlet that regulates pond water level and prevents flooding, a new pavilion area for events, congregating or just relaxing. It will also have a new parking area that will serve as a load in area for concerts and performances.
Construction has begun. The outlet control structure has been installed. Also, the pipes to control the level of water in the pond are in place and the pond liner has been re sealed. Work on the walls, columns, sidewalks and terraces has begun. Grading for the parking area will start next week.
