Last night the final design concept of Brook Run Park was released showing two multi-use fields in the back of the park, a new playground near the fields, new concession area with restrooms, parking and a new back gate off Barclay for vehicles so that heavy traffic to the back will not impact the other sections of the park.  There is a new restroom between the dog park and community garden, a back pedestrian entrance off Peeler, picnic areas, pavilions, sand volleyball court, nature arboretum, two full & two half court basket courts, four tennis courts, a new picnic area within the trees, new memorial plaza & garden, new trail connections and finally a 6 acre great lawn overlooking a band shell for city concerts.   I believe this concept has squeezed everything imaginable into the park, offering something for everyone.   Thoughts?

Now please tell us what you think of the final design concept for Brook Run Park.

The Parks and Recreation Department drafted the Brook Run Park design based on community input gathered during a Jan. 17 public input meeting at St. Patrick's Church and the feedback from the Parks Master Plan community survey. The community was then invited to give initial feedback on the final design concept during a May 16 meeting at City Hall.

You may now share your feedback directly to the City online. Click on the image above to review the large scale final design concept for Brook Run Park and then provide input.

Public input will be accepted online through Wednesday, May 24, at 5 p.m. (EST). Thank you in advance for your valued participation!

Love the design but would love to see a fountain or splash pad

I agree with the splash pad suggestion

Would love to have a swimming pool with a toddler/baby pool. There are lots of people in the city who don't have access to a community pool. It would be great if Brook Run had a pool.

I agree a splash pad would be an awesome addition. I promise the issue will be raised. Thanks. John

Something the kids can cool off in when it's hot and put on a timer so water isn't wasted
