Parks Commission Special October Meeting

The Parks Commission met Tuesday morning, October 10 at 8:30 am in Riverside Park. We walked the park and reviewed potential locations for a new pavilion. After a few stops and a lot of discussion, we settled on a site near the east end of the park with a great view of the entire park. I like it because it hits almost every point on my wish list:

  • It’s clearly visible from almost anywhere in the park
  • It’s not too close to the homes on Orange Street
  • It can be connected to the existing brick path path
  • It should have minimal impact on the Blossom Time festival

We agreed that the pavilion should be large enough to accommodate four picnic tables, two of which should be wheelchair accessible. Using an estimate of the table dimensions and recommended spacing, we think the structure will be roughly 21 × 21 feet.

Hi Brian,

I was just going to ask you a few questions about the items on the park agenda.

  1. I was wondering if the fake coyotes have been installed at Riverside Park and if they have been are they working to keep the geese away?

  2. Are the other 2 improvements to Riverside Park, are they going to be done after the playground is constructed? Or are they being done now? How many picnic tables and will there be a new pavilion also?

  3. I saw that in the agenda that there was a discussion about donations for improvements to River Run Park. Are those donations for the park itself or for the baseball field renovations. If for the park, what other improvements would be done to the park itself? Also are the baseball fields still on track to being renovated this fall?

Thanks so much,
