Swanek Park is getting an upgrade. The park, which is frequently pretty swampy, will have pipes and channels installed to improve drainage.
The channels will be installed in the rough shape of a lower-case g and will in some places be covered with gravel. The work should begin in November and be completed by the spring—earlier if weather allows.
According to the planning group, the city will build a walking path around the park next year or in 2015, depending on when the budget is approved. It might be possible to improve the playground set at the same time, and the group is looking for input from local parents and children.
The baseball diamond could also use some work, and residents are looking to raise money from charitable groups and fundraising.
