At the December 21, 2016 special Board of Trustees meeting, the Board approved a contract with DeFalco Construction, to move forward with restoration and improvements to Bohn Park. This phase of the Lyons Parks Recovery includes river restoration and improved ecological habitat, parking, a new restroom facility, a pedestrian bridge connecting to 4th Ave., continuance of the trail system within the plan area, and other infrastructure enhancements. The majority of the work will be within the blue highlighted area on the map. Construction will begin in January 2017, and is anticipated to be complete in late summer.
The Bohn Park Phase I recovery project is nearing completion (woohoo!), but we're asking for your continued patience and assistance through the final stretch. Please be reminded and help spread the word that the park remains closed to vehicles and foot traffic (non-personnel) in all construction areas, at all times. Visitors can access the southern areas of the park, including the multi-purpose field, dirt jump bike and Bohn Park Dog Park, via the trail access off 2nd Ave., and following the trail along the eastern portion of the park. Visitors are welcome to park at the wastewater treatment plant public parking area, located along 2nd Ave., east of Bohn Park.
Phase I will open once sod, seed, & plants are rooted and healthy. Re-vegetation is already underway. The timing is reliant on several factors (construction setbacks, weather, etc.); at this juncture, Phase I could open as early as mid-December, or may be Spring of 2018. As more progress is made, the Town will continue to send updates. We appreciate your continued patience in restoring Bohn Park. So close!
