I happened to drive by Dickinson Square today and noticed they finally broke ground. Any clue when the new park will be done and what is going to be there?

  • some info:

    As is evident from the activity in the Park, renovations have begun. Construction in the Park will continue for some months.  There isn't a hard-and-fast timeline of completion due to the variables of weather, unforeseen construction difficulties, possible logistical issues, and so forth.  For example, crews cannot pour concrete when the temperature falls below 32 degrees; thus, if we have a particularly cold winter with multiple consecutive days of high temperates below the freezing mark, the process very well may be delayed, pushing the completion date further into the Spring.

    But this is a small price to pay for a completely renovated Park.  Some quick highlights:

    • The round red building will be demolished and removed, thereby opening up sight lines across the Park.
    • Old and unhealthy trees will be removed.
    • The Park will have new pedestrian-level lighting, and the old 1970s street lights will be removed.
    • New concrete pathways will be installed on the Morris Street side of the Park.
    • The old playground equipment will be removed, and new, modern equipment installed.
    • New water lines will be installed on the Tasker Street side, making it easier to water new plants.
    • A new basketball court.
    • And more.

     

  • nice, thanks! i am excited for it to open
