Rosslyn's array of styling bike racks.
No changes will be made to the picnic area and basketball court in the 14th St. right-of-way. A major sewer line passes under 14th St., making any work in this area prohibitively expensive. The existing children's park above the basketball court, and the picnic table in the space above the park will be removed. Both those spaces will be converted into green space.
Open green space will be preserved on the north end of the park and will connect to the existing green space on western side of the lower park. On the western side, the possibility of connecting the lower green space to the new upper green space will be explored.
The proposed design will be formally presented to the neighborhood at the upcoming RAFOM meeting on September 20, 7pm, in the Prospect House Meeting Room (1200 N. Oak St.). The new playground will be complete next August, at the earliest. Whether the upper picnic tables and basketball court will remain open during the renovation remains to be negotiated with the construction company.
