The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department and the Wild Spaces & Public Places program are pleased to announce the installation of new shade structures over the Fred Cone Park bleachers. The canopy offers shaded seating for sports spectators and spans the full length of the bleachers, which will soon accommodate up to 360 people. Measuring 125 feet long, 16 feet high and 21 feet wide, the cost of the project was $75,275.00 and was funded by the Wild Spaces & Public Places half-cent sales tax.
