A community park in the area is undergoing a $1.3 million project to install a splashpad, playground and other features.

Jackson Park, at 1331 33rd St. SW in Wyoming, also is getting a restroom, shelter, security lighting, a new parking lot and an access road from Robin Avenue.

Resident input was the foundation of the design, the city said.

“We’re excited to bring the ideas of residents to reality,” said Jack Poll, Wyoming mayor. “The redevelopment of Jackson Park has been highly anticipated by area residents in this densely populated area of our community.”

Construction will begin this spring, and the park’s grand opening is planned for the summer of 2021.

Funding for the project is being provided through the city’s capital projects revolving fund with staff support through the city’s dedicated parks and recreation operational millage.

Katerberg Verhage Inc. is the landscaper contracted for the project.
