Park construction began in mid-July and many of the new features are underway. As of September 9, the sewer and water services have been installed, as well as the subbase for the skatepark. Additionally, the skatepark contractor is preparing to pour the skatepark concrete. More construction updates will be posted in early October.
With the Timber Creek development, Ironwood Park will grow by roughly 3.5 acres. The Parks Commission and City Council spent much of 2021 working towards new programming for the area. Images below show the updated park features, which include an outdoor classroom, a basketball court, a pavilion, a new skate park, and passive seating areas throughout the park. The pavilion will be available for rent with a serving counter, water, and permanent lawn games including corn hole and ping pong.
