Scott emails earlier today: “Any news on when the new park will open?”
Yes, thanks to Donna Hartmann-Miller.
In the Maple Leaf Community Council newsletter being delivered door-to-door now, she writes the park will open, in part, at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27. “Exact time may be adjusted,” she says.
“There will most likely be some areas of the upper area that will remain fenced, but most of the paths, the sports court, the shelter and some of the grassy areas will be available for our use.”
For the full story see your newsletter. There are details on what’s there – including a planned crosswalk at Roosevelt Way Northeast and Northeast 83rd Street – and what’s not – including some picnic tables and grills.
Hartmann-Miller is a member of the community’s council’s Executive Committee, and chairs its parks committee.
