Urban Design Committee to consider changes for Bill Robinson Park

08/10/2017 6:15 AM by

The agenda for today’s Urban Design Committee includes a proposal by the Friends of Bill Robinson Park for some changes to the park on 35th Street. The proposal, “intended for increased security, park utilization, and greater sustainability”, includes building new basketball courts alongside the tennis court across from Franklin Military, relocating the horseshoe pits, and adding plantings to alleviate flooding issues.

The proposal says that “demolition of the existing basketball courts and construction of the walking trails will commence Fall 2017. Construction of the new basketball courts is scheduled for late Winter/early Spring 2018.”
