Strang Park Improvement Project

Strang Park is scheduled for upgrades and improvements in 2020.

The City is in the planning stage of park improvements. Two public meetings were held in September and October of 2019 to gather feedback from residents. City staff will continue to work with neighbors as plans for the improvements are finalized.

The new park design will encompass a broad range of creative activities and incorporate construction of standard and custom park elements that keep the historical focus of the area alive. Improvements will include:

  • Playground – an inclusive playground will feature climbing and multi-play elements, sensory play, a toddler area, and seating
  • Entry plaza – including walkways, existing historical signage and Strang Line elements, porch swing seating, and a lawn game area
  • Pickleball courts, which will be first-come, first-serve
  • Basketball – two half-courts, which will be first-come, first-serve
  • Trails – a new eight-foot-wide loop trail
  • Parking – an reconstructed parking lot and additional on-street parallel parking on Farley Street
  • Restroom and shelters – with architecture inspired by original elements of the Strang Line Railroad

The park’s existing tennis courts will remain.

The image shown left is a final concept. Most elements included will be a part of the ultimate park design. Changes may occur during final design development based on resident and steering committee feedback.

Construction is expected to start in the spring of 2020.
