Crawford Park Grand Opening

The New Crawford Park

  • Establishing a unique identity for the park unlike any other in the City.  Thematically creating a “Nature Park” that would include man made constructed wetlands.
  • Moves major park elements like play equipment out of the floodplain.
  • Creates an active play area that would include nature themed equipment and a water element for smaller children in the area of the current splashpad.  The playground will feature inclusive components for children of any ability.
  • Establishes a neighborhood lawn area for open play and special events like a movie or concert.
  • Build a new restroom building adjacent to the play area that would also be convenient for visitors to the Shiojiri Niwa Japanese Garden across the street.
  • Build three new picnic shelters/pavilions to meet increased demand.  One adjacent to the play area, one in the center of the park, and one adjacent to Niles Avenue.  Provide a small off-street parking lot at Niles Avenue south of the intersection of Linden Avenue to better meet the parking requirements for the proposed activities.
  • Adds multiple sidewalks and board walks in the park to improve handicapped accessibility to equipment/restroomsbb
