City parks commission to address new parks, ballfields
KINGMAN – The City’s Parks, Aquatics, Recreation and Golf Commission will address the playground at Firefighters Park and review the Sunbelt Park master plan at its meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 15 in Council chambers, 310 N. Fourth St.
As always, the meeting will open with numerous reports from department heads. Those include updates from the recreation superintendent, the golf course, the interim parks superintendent and the Parks director.
The playground at Firefighters Park, 2201 Detroit Ave., will cost about $163,000 and will include swings, spinners, a space net, a carousel and more. Commissioners will be updated on the park’s construction at Wednesday’s meeting.
The commission will also go through a draft of the master plan for the Sunbelt Park that would be located behind White Cliffs Middle School, 3550 Prospector St. The park would consist of baseball and soccer fields, and basketball and sand volleyball courts. Plans also include a splash pad, playground and a fire station. There are currently three layout options being considered by commissioners and City staff. The City has just shy of $400,000 for the project.
Also scheduled for the meeting is an update and discussion on parks, open space, trails and recreation, and a review of the golf course’s pro shop and grill.
