The following are descriptions of proposed park improvements associated with the parks bond. These proposed improvements are tentative and subject to change. There is no guarantee that these improvements will be implemented as stated or that a new park will be approved as part of the parks bond. Implementation of these improvements will be subject to future public hearing and public bidding. All dates of these future meetings for the implementation of these improvements will be advertised and the meetings will be open to the public. All costs included are tentative projections and subject to change.
Wheel Park is a currently undeveloped park slated to be developed into a family-oriented park. The proposed park is generally divided into two areas: the west active bike/skate park and the east family zone. To the west of N. Winter Park Drive will be the large bike/skate park area that includes a flow bowl, snake run area, street area, and associated parking. There will also be a formal ceremonial lawn with a pavilion and restroom building. Connecting east across N. Winter Park Drive are proposed raised crossings leading to the family area, which will have its own parking lot. The family area will include an ADA adventure playground, bicycle “Tiny Towne” training area for children ages 2–5, skills and pump track for children ages 5–12, a restroom building, and two pavilions. Lastly, space has been reserved in the park plan for future development of a sensory/community garden.
This project is projected to cost $8,855,612.43, based on the conceptual design cost estimate.
The preliminary estimated additional annual operating cost related to the proposed improvements for this park is $115,967.
