City of Potenza Park: January 2023 Update

Thanks to all of the input and engagement from the community in 2022, we have finalized the concept plans for the improved playground and new picnic shelter. The concept plan includes a climbing structure, a “we-go-round” spinner, swings for toddlers and kids, and new play surfacing with mounds and berms. Moving forward, construction drawings will be finalized, with construction expected to begin in Quarter 4 of 2023.
