Delaware city officials recently met with residents who live near Glenross Park to discuss the next wave of improvements.
Following those discussions, the city made some adjustments to its plans for Phase 2 to improve the neighborhood park at 910 Ballater Drive on the city’s southeast side.
“We’re hoping we can get a lot of these improvements done,” Parks and Natural Resources Director Ted Miller said during a Parks and Recreation Advisory Board meeting on Tuesday.
Park improvements would include new topsoil for the field turfs, an asphalt trail, mounding and landscaping, additional playground amenities, and a small shelter.
The city of Delaware has budgeted $63,241 for Phase 2 in its capital improvement plan for this year. In addition, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ NatureWorks grant program awarded $43,729 to the city for the project.
“By pursuing additional opportunities for Ohioans to enjoy the outdoors, these communities are investing in their overall health and in preserving the outdoor experience for our kids and grand kids,” said ODNR Director James Zehringer in a statement at the time.
