Renovations include the update of the playground area, pavilion, sports court and install walking trails.

During the 1950s, a site near the park was used as an unpermitted landfill. As part of this project, the city will complete work to maintain and increase safety protocols for this site as part of a Voluntary Clean-up Program (VCP). This work requires tree removal in the park and the installation of an enhanced barrier on top of the old landfill.

Local shopping and dining enable MCDC to make a direct impact back into the community. MCDC has invested more than $100 million into the community to support quality of life projects.
