The City of San Angelo Parks and Recreation Department has a full list of two dozen projects and programs taking place in 2016.
The City just completed work on The Bosque, located on South Irving Street along the Concho River. The area now has a miniature golf course, concession stand, paddle boats and sand volleyball.
Final touches to the Red Arroyo Trail will be completed early this year. The project includes a 14-foot-wide concrete path that connects Sherwood Way to Knickerbocker Road. According to Carl White, City of San Angelo Parks and Recreation Director, the trail is already attracting dog-walkers, runners, cyclists and skaters. The City, along with Art in Uncommon Places, will be adding pieces of public artwork along the path. Once that is complete, crews will begin construction on San Angelo’s first dog park. The dog park will feature fenced-in play areas for large and small breeds. Construction should take two months once the Red Arroyo Trail project is complete.
The City will also work to convert the Bradford Elementary School grounds into a neighborhood park and begin renovating and improving Brentwood Park.
Ramps will be added at Glenmore Park for canoes and kayaks and at Lake Nasworthy’s Spring Creek Park for boats.
There will also be several renovations at Texas State Bank Sports Complex and construction will begin to design and renovate a voter-approved $1.75 million face lift for the 29th Street Sports Complex. The renovations will return the four play field complex back to usable conditions.
