Centennial Park

Centennial Park
93rd & S. Nashville
 
Centennial Park received a major renovation, thanks to a $400,000 Open Space Land Acquisition Development (OSLAD) grant and $80,000 Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) grant. 

Renovations included four new softball fields that radiate out from a central concessions stand and bathroom facility, LED lighting throughout the park (LED sport lighting in the softball fields, sand volleyball courts, and inline hockey rink) and all new walking paths.

The sand volleyball court located along 93rd & Oak Park Ave., received an additional 3rd court along with new fencing, curbing, accessible pathways, and benches. Exercise stations were added, the soccer field was re-graded to increase storm-water retention, and an informational native tree area was planted on the east end.
