City details Surprise Community Park upgrades

Some parts closed through December

The city has detailed the improvements that are coming to the Surprise Community Park on Bullard Avenue and Paradise Lane.

Starting Monday, June 20, construction will begin at the park to improve the fishing lake, dog parks and north parking lot. The main park area will also be getting lighting upgrades, shade structures replacements and the addition of restrooms.

These planned improvements will provide more amenities and overall enjoyment for park users.

The work is expected to last until December and will require temporary closures of different areas including the fishing lake, the walking path around the lake and the north parking lot.

Additionally, the closure of the other areas will affect the main entrance to the dog parks, but a new temporary entrance will be created.

Here is what park-goers can expect:

• North Parking Lot: The current temporary parking area will be removed to create a permanent asphalt parking lot with lighting. This will improve the overall functionality of the parking area and increase the accessibility to the park. A section of the north end of library parking lot will be closed starting June 20 through approximately December.

• Lake: Most of the lake water will be drained to repair and replace the liner underneath, which will help prevent future water loss. A concrete curbing will also be added around the lake to stop the water from rising onto the existing shoreline as levels change from irrigation. This will improve the area for both the lake inhabitants and lake users. These improvements will require a closure of the lake and the walking paths around the lake from June 20 until approximately December.

• Dog Park: A drywell will be installed to help minimize ponding and mud after storms. Small portions of the dog park may be closed during construction, but the parks are not expected to fully close. The closure of other areas will affect the main entrance to the dog parks; however a temporary entrance will be created adjacent to the parking lot on the east side of the parks.
