Town Square extension work starts July 21

Phase 2 construction for the Sorauren Park Town Square starts July 21 thanks to community fundraising efforts and support from Parks, Forestry and Recreation.

This additional construction will:

  • extend the Town Square permeable paving pattern into the pathway and new, expanded patio space around the Sorauren Fieldhouse, replacing much of the limestone screening
  • re-use the existing Fieldhouse patio pavers into a wider pathway on the west side of the Fieldhouse, fixing a drainage problem
  • move one healthy tree to replace one dead tree near the Town Square. The dead tree was the only tree of 48 new trees that did not make it through the brutal winter, a testament to the success of the Adopt-A-Tree crew. Many parks had 30% attrition on new trees.

Construction will start on Tuesday to have the least effect as possible on the Monday Farmers’ Market. Work is expected to last about two weeks, depending on weather.

The work does not include the bake oven… still fundraising for that!
