Johnson Park revitalization on track

staff reports
Anna officials say that the renovation to Johnson Park at Sherley Avenue and 1st street should be completed before March.

Anna officials announced Jan. 22 that renovations at Johnson Park are on track to be completed by the end of February.  Selected demolition is nearing completion, with new fencing and baseball backstops slated to be installed this week.

Over the next month, crews plan to install updated playground equipment that will be ADA accessible. New features include a padded rubber surface, a “whirl” which is like a wheel-chair accessible merry-go-round, and a tri-swing.

Visitors can also look forward to updates in the restroom/pavilion building, a widened entrance, and a new culvert to make getting into and out of the park much easier than it had previously been.
