Bohn Park Phase II Update

Bohn Park Phase II Update

Seeding has been completed on the eastern portion of Bohn Park Phase II. The contractor will be working on irrigation and sod for the ballfields through mid-November. In order to lay the sod, an additional soil amendment will be tilled and placed, around the end of October. The contractor has also begun setting the foundation for the custom pavilion. 

At this time, project managers anticipate Bohn Park Phase II to be open in Spring 2020.

Lyons Valley River Park Update

From mid-November through the end of December, additional rework will begin in the ponds area of the Lyons Valley River Park project. The work will encompass both ponds, including access areas and in between the ponds. This work will require heavy equipment, and the area remains closed to the public. Additional landscaping will take place, once the weather warms up in spring. Project managers anticipate a Spring 2020 opening.
