Public Meeting Scheduled for Unity Park Improvements
The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department (PRCA) and Wild Spaces & Public Places Department (WSPP) want your feedback on future park improvements at Unity Park (formerly NE 31st Avenue Park), which is located at 1710 NE 31st Ave., east of NE 15th Street, and adjacent to the Flatwoods Conservation area.
Interested members of the public are invited to attend the meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 19, from 6-7 p.m. at Upper Room Church, located at 3575 NE 15th St. Some of the proposed park improvements include two new basketball courts, a walking/exercise loop, modern playground equipment with sidewalk games, a pavilion and a community garden. Designs will be on display for the public to view and discuss. Light refreshments will be provided. Any park improvements will be funded with the WSPP half-cent sales tax.
