Crown Valley Park Improvement Project
Public Works was honored with the 2021 American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Outstanding Urban or Land Development Project Award for its improvement of Crown Valley Park. This extensive project was comprised of three phases and took seven years to complete. The Project included several unique environmental and safety aspects: a sensored sprayground and a forest-themed playground; renovation of a stream bed as a wetland site, which improved the water quality; a new culvert to prevent storm flooding and park closures during rain events; and a new pedestrian bridge. Also part of this Project was the completion of a three-story, 30,000 square foot Community Center all ages to engage in educational, social, and recreational opportunities.
