Wirz Park Master Plan
Wirz Park is an existing park poised to receive upgrades to make it more functional and to better serve the community. A major proposed improvement is the renovation and expansion of the existing community building, including an outdoor event patio with a shade pavilion and several social terraces to hold larger-scale events. The existing pool area will also be expanded and fenced in to include a new splash pad with play elements, zero-entry pool, lap pool, and office building, and pavilions and shade structures throughout the area. A new shaded ADA-accessible playground and a new volleyball court are proposed adjacent to the expanded pool area. Current field will be renovated for multi-use sports play with an expanded parking lot to service the expanded pool and event spaces, as well as a multipurpose field with extended area for backstop and infield. For the southeast corner of the property, a new pavilion, basketball court, and fitness court are proposed. Connectivity into the park will also be improved with a raised crosswalk crossing Mark David Boulevard as well as an upgraded trail connection point to the south.
Improvements are projected to cost $5,301,395.93, based on the conceptual design cost estimate.
The preliminary estimated additional annual operating cost related to the proposed improvements for this park is $250,761.
