For those who were unable to attend, the presentation and 3 DRAFT Concept Plans were available for review and comment by July 29. Community feedback was used to develop one hybrid final concept plan that was shared at the second public meeting in August.
The Tantra Park site was acquired in four separate dedications from 1963-1973.The northern portion was constructed with city funding and a grant from the Land and Water Conservation Fund. In 1973, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board named the site Tantra Park. The southern 10 acres was completed in 1978 with city funding and an additional grant from the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
The multi-use path was installed on the north side of the park in 1995. An extension of the multi-use path is currently underway along the north side of Hanover. There was a minor playground renovation in 1997.
The Park and Recreation Department’s annual Capital Investment Program identified Tantra Park as a priority for funding. The main improvements identified were replacement of aging playground equipment, upgrade the play area surface, improving accessibility and replacing irrigation.
