During Construction - Be Safe!
Areas of the existing park, such as the playfield, will remain open during construction as much as possible, but sections of the park will be closed as needed to complete new construction. For your safety, do not enter into the construction area, do not cross fencing/barriers and stay clear of all construction activity.
