WAGNER PARK CLOSURE - SUMMER 2014
Additional Things to Know:
Summary:
Preliminary plans for Wagner Park indicate that the park will be closed from early July 2014 - June 2015. During that time, the park will be closed to the public, except for a brief stint in Fall 2014 when the park will be re-opened before the next phase of construction begins. Ultimately, the improvements will make Wagner Park a more resilient field for the next 30 years.

 

Reasoning for Construction in Wagner Park:

  • High general park use wears out turf
  • Park use has increased significantly
  • Current recovery time after events is not as cost effective as renovation.

 

Approximate Dates of Park Closure:

  • May 2014 - May 2014
  • July 2014 - Fall 2014
  • Fall 2014 - June 2015

Details of Improvements:

  • Proposed renovation of the field profile: This includes modification of the soil profile to allow for better drainage and turf.
  • Utilization of temporary flooring systems during Special Events: Two temporary flooring products are being purchased to protect the top of Wagner Park during heavy traffic.
  • Added Electrical Infrastructure: Installing the electrical infrastructure needed by most events will eliminate the need for generators and will decrease energy consumption and noise in the park.
