Closed. This project supplements park uses shown in the 2010 Park Master Plan. This project helps to revitalize the area and attract more visitors and residents to the park and waterfront area.  

The project includes two embankment slides, approaches, park seating and site restoration. The first slide is intended for use by pre-school aged children and meets requirements for accessibility; the second slide is larger for use by school-aged children to adults.
