Construction to Begin on Deerpath Community Park Improvement Project
Construction on the Deerpath Community Park Improvement Project will begin the week of March 27 and last through mid-October.
The project involves installing synthetic turf athletic fields and additional amenities for the community park, including two restroom buildings with shaded open-air pavilions, renovated tennis/pickleball courts, a playground, fitness stations, and natural area enhancements.
What you need to know:
- A majority of construction activities will be confined to the project site, which includes Deerpath Community Park fields and tennis courts.
- Access will remain open at all times to the Recreation Center, Public Safety Building, and Deer Path Middle School.
- To limit impacts to Deerpath Middle School families, students, and staff, the most impactful parts of the project are planned for the summer months when school is not in session. When school is in session, the contractor will work to limit impacts during pick up and drop off times.
- There will be increased truck traffic along Deerpath Road and south of Deerpath on Golf Lane during portions of the project when trucks will be delivering and hauling away materials.
What’s happening first?
Pre-construction activities begin the week of March 27 and will include installing temporary fencing and signage, delivering equipment, and preparing the worksite. For the first month, excavation and on-site activities will require limited truck traffic. The project phases with the highest level of truck traffic are planned for the summer months when school is not in session. Construction is expected to last through mid-October. Find the full schedule on the project webpage.
What will the finished project look like?
We’re working on a project display that will be up at the Rec Center by the end of the week. You’ll be able to walk on the turf surface, see a profile of the turf system, and view renderings of the new park.
Where can I find more info?
The Deerpath Community Park Improvement Project webpage will be updated throughout the project. Once construction begins, you’ll be able to watch the project progress through the livestream construction camera on the project webpage!
