The next neighborhood park to be designed and constructed in Olathe will be the 5.2 acres of open green space located west of the round-a-bout at Greenwood and 116th Street.
A public meeting was held on Thursday, January 24th at 7p.m. at Heatherstone Elementary School. There were approximately 40 residence in attendance. A layout of the park was shown which included a shelter, playground, open green space and walking trail. Possible additions to the park could include excercise equipment.
Currently a design for the park is being developed and construction is beginning. The city's in house construction crew will build the park. The city has accepted excess soil from the development to the west of the site, so currently there are mounds of soil placed along the north and south sides of the property. These bermed areas will be further developed once the final plans for the park have been completed. Construction of the walkway, shelter and playground area will continue through the winter and be completed early spring of 2014.
