Glenlake Park Update

Major renovations will begin on Glenlake Park during the week of March 23rd. This is the first comprehensive improvement to Glenlake Park in over 50 years. Work should be completed by the end of this year and will include new walking trails, pedestrian bridges, improved athletic fields, a new multi-purpose pavilion and an expanded dog park. Streambed restoration will improve water quality reduce downstream flooding and allow the stream to become an integral part of the park experience. A new bathhouse is currently underway and should be completed in time for the pool to reopen this Memorial Day.
To provide an alternative parking option for patrons of Glenlake Tennis Center and Glenlake Pool, we will close one lane of travel in each direction on Church Street beginning the week of March 23rd and create on-street parking for park patrons. This alteration of Church Street will be maintained throughout park construction. We don't anticipate any major traffic problems as a result of this reconfiguration but there is a possibility that traffic on Church Street will be slowed, particularly during morning and afternoon rush hours and wanted to give you and your associates' time to prepare for this change.
