Project Scope: Install chain link fence and soccer goals at Bryant Park to activate the park as a multi-use practice facility. A possible future phase would include irrigation, lighting and parking.
Status as of Sept. 21: Soccer goals have been assembled and delivered to site. Fence installation started Sept. 19 and will take less than three weeks to complete.
Project Scope: Installation of permanent sports lights for both baseball fields at Johnson Park.
Status as of Sept. 21, 2022: Construction agreement with Musco Sports Lighting executed July 28, 2022. Geotechnical work is being performed to verify that standard footing design for light poles is sufficient for the soils on the site. Project will be completed before the beginning of baseball season.
Project Scope: Design and construction of a wheeled sports park (commonly called a skatepark) at Slayter Creek Park. The facility will cover approximately 18,000 SF and will be lighted.
Status: Five concept plans were presented by New Line Skateparks to a group of neighbors who use the skating elements currently located at the Slayter Creek Park. A preferred concept was selected with minor changes. The concept plan was presented to the Parks Advisory Board on Aug. 15 and will be further developed into a three-dimensional model. Once the model is presented to City Council and approved, construction documents will be created.
SPA Skateparks has been selected as the contractor. Construction should begin in late January/early February 2023 and will be completed near the end of Summer 2023 or early Fall.
Project Scope: Funding was provided in the current Park CIP budget for minor splash pad improvements, but pump and mechanical failures have prompted a complete evaluation of the future viability of the splash pad.
Status as of Sept. 21, 2022: A report was completed by an aquatics consultant which is currently under review by City of Anna staff. Findings and recommendations were presented to the Parks Advisory Board on Aug. 15 who recommended a complete renovation with a budget of $2.5 million to Council. City Council approved a design/build contract with Kraftsman Commercial Playgrounds and Waterparks on Sept. 16.
A public input meeting was held at the Parks Advisory Board meeting on Sept. 19. Design has begun and will be completed as soon as possible. The target date for opening is early May, 2023.
Project Scope: A shaded fitness station will be provided east of the existing splash pad at Slayter Creek Park. The area will accommodate equipment for various exercises on a padded surface.
Status: A $50,000 grant was awarded to the City to supplement the construction of the project. Staff is currently designing the pad based on survey data received Sept. 19.
The fitness court will be immediately adjacent to a new restroom building. Equipment for the court will be delivered by mid-October.
Project Scope: Design and build a small restroom building east of the existing splash pad at Slayter Creek Park.
Status: The restroom has been designed and will bid once it has been sited with the upcoming fitness center (both will be in close proximity). Staff is currently planning utility connections and siting the building based on recently received survey data. The project is scheduled to be complete near the end of Q1 2023.
