Civic Area - Creek at the Core

Civic Area - Creek at the Core

SUMMARY

Enhancements to areas north and south of the creek including infrastructure to link the library and creek, playgrounds and nature play areas along both sides of the creek, and improvements in the area near the Gilbert White Memorial.

Description

  • This includes improvements to areas north and south of the creek for nature play, education, recreation and social activity, including: infrastructure to link the library and creek; playgrounds and nature play areas and other improvements along both sides of the creek (between the library and municipal building and East of Broadway); and improvements in the area adjacent to the Gilbert White Memorial.

    The most substantial investment will be in transforming the south side of the creek and the library into a large state-of-the-art nature play area that will serve as a significant attraction for families and create a strong synergy with improvements currently underway at the library. Cost estimates for this and related “Creek at the Core” work include items such as: asphalt removal; landforming; equipment investments; irrigation systems; pathways; furniture; extensive landscaping; lighting; and signage.
