October 1 , 2021 : Playground Closures

Friday October 1, 2021 the Park’s playgrounds will be closed during the day. 

Hank Rappé Playground will be closed from 7am – 4pm 

Hecht Pavilion Playground will be closed from 12pm – 4pm.

Please plan your visit to the Park accordingly.

July 27, 2021 : Safety alert!

Earlier this year as a start to the Master Plan, the old baseball fields by Hecht Pavilion were removed. As of yesterday, more work in that area has begun with the removal of the field lights. The Conservancy asks for all trail walkers and Park visitors to be a little more aware of their surroundings than usual as that area is a now an active construction site. 

Also, as a friendly reminder, please do not tempt others by leaving valuables alone and out in the open when visiting the Park. This includes, but is not limited to, leaving valuables in your locked cars.
