Background: The New Crawford Park will establish a new and unique identity and will be unlike any other city park. The new and improved park will include a natural aesthetic and man-made constructed wetlands that feature a walkway.

The wetlands will separate the walkway from the new play area and water element for children. The play area will feature inclusive components for children of any ability. The park will also have a lawn area with enough space for concerts or public events. There will also be 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.

Along with that there will be three new picnic shelters/pavilions and there will be a new small off-street parking lot added at Niles Avenue south of the intersection of Linden Avenue to better meet the parking requirements for the proposed activities.
