Originally built in 2002, Conservation Park (524 W. Belmont) recently underwent a renovation, bringing in a new playground, pathways, landscaping, security lighting, and infrastructure. In addition, the fishing pavilion and shelter received a new coat of paint.

“Conservation Park is one of our busiest parks,” stated Mayor John Noak.

“I’m sure the residents that spend their time here will appreciate the new features and updated equipment.”

Conservation Park is right next to Lake Strini, which will undergo its own renovation starting in Spring 2021. The project, which is partially being funded by a $382,800 Open Space Land And Development grant, will include butterfly and rain gardens, a board walk spanning the lake, an exploration deck, sunning steps, and more.
