The City Council is reviewing a $3 million bond request from Mayor Arthur Vigeant to improve Ward Park.
"As I have stated on numerous occasions, Ward Park has long been neglected and in dire need of
investment and upgrading," wrote Mayor Vigeant to the City Council in the request. "The time has finally come to make a commitment to ensuring that
Ward Park is given new life so that its potential can be fully utilized by families and groups of all
ages and interests."
The request is currently under review by the council's Operation and Oversight Committee. The funds would be used for the renovation of the courts, fields and parking at Ward Park, according to Vigeant.
