The mayor and City Council will cut the ribbon, and short remarks will be made by the mother of the young girl who first lobbied for the original park playground to be installed 13 years ago.
The park was temporarily closed to allow the city to remove outdated equipment and replace it with two new play structures, a new safety surface and some benches. The project was completed several weeks ahead of schedule.
Evergreen Park is located in the open space at the corner of Evergreen and Brandon drives.
The project was funded by a combination of Proposition 40 and Roberti-Z’berg-Harris (RZH) block grants.
