New Look at Stephen's Lake Park
There is some confusion on the park's progress, and it's raising questions about whether the project can be done on time. Despite the massive facelift and major new additions, the Department of Parks and Recreation says everything is on schedule.
Once construction is completed, the department says Stephen's Lake Park will be unlike any other park in the city. Some of the new features are unique.
"With Stephen's Lake Park, we are building a passive recreation park in combination with some elements of what you might find at an arboretum botanical gardens," Senior Park Planner Mike Snyder said.
The park will include tree collections, new landscaping, a waterfall and spray ground plaza.
Snyder expects all these additions to be finished by next summer.
