Camera Park Redevelopment


Camra Park

We are happy to announce that the construction has started at Camera Park! Over the next few months excavation and demolition will take place to prepare the area for new amenities. New amenities include a state of the art ADA accessible playground, a splash pad, fitness station, challenge course, disc golf and new restrooms. This project is partially funded by an OSLAD grant and will be completed by the end of the year.

Please keep in mind that during construction, certain areas of the park may be affected. We appreciate your patience and look forward to the grand re-opening of Camera Park!
