The Roseville City Council overcame a funding hurdle, clearing the way for upgrades to two new community parks.
Late last month, the city council both approved funding and awarded a construction contract for Central Park.
While the construction funds were available, the project couldn’t get off the ground in earnest without maintenance funds, which are allocated through the city’s General Fund.
The city prioritized maintenance funding for both Central and Crabb parks. Crabb Park is under construction. Construction of the upgrades to the 20-acre Central Park is expected to begin next Spring.
Amenities at Central Park will include two lighted softball fields, other field lighting, basketball courts, shaded picnic areas, parking, restrooms and the Mike Shellito Indoor Pool.
Central Park is located behind Nugget Market on Fairway Drive.
