Project managers from the Recreation and Parks Design and Construction team worked with the Area Commission and the Department of Developmentā€™s UIRF team to identify and prioritize the scope of improvements for the park. As a result, the proposed construction will replace demolished structures with a new shelter and add shelter amenities including park benches, a grill, a trash receptacle, landscaping, and a sidewalk. The sidewalk will connect the new shelter to the existing Milo Grogan Community Center and adjacent Starr and St. Clair streets.
