Kensington Park - South Playground Replacement Project
Replacement of the playground at the south end of Kensington Park is underway! Plans include a new expanded playground with swings and new playground surfacing with increased safety and universal accessibility. Improvements at the site also include installation of a mini-shelter, picnic table, trash receptacles, a bike rack and 2 benches. The project is a wonderful example of community support and would not have been possible without a donation from the Guadalupe Charitable Trust to honor Paul David Rodriguez, one of the City's Latino sons who grew up in the Kensington neighborhood and was killed in the Vietnam War on April 5, 1966. In addition to the private donation, the Kensington neighborhood also received a Neighborhood Improvement Grant to aid the project and LiveWell Longmont is donating a bike rack for the site. The new playground and site improvement is scheduled for completion in mid to late January, 2014 (weather dependent of course). For questions regarding this project, please contact Kathy Kron at (303) 774-4528 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rodriguez Field at Clark Centennial Park - Lighting Upgrade Project
A lighting upgrade project is underway at Rodriguez Field at Clark Centennial Park. Rodriguez Field is located south of the parking lot along Alpine Street. During September and October contractors will be removing the existing light fixtures and poles and installing a new energy efficient lighting system. The new lighting system will substantially improve lighting for the field, provide more controlled and directed lighting, and also provide shields which will minimize light spill into the surrounding neighborhood. For questions regarding this project, please contact Kathy Kron at (303) 774-4528 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
