Silver Lake Recreation Area Improvements
Have you noticed the construction activity at the Silver Lake Recreation Area? Crews are busy installing an irrigation system throughout most of the area inside the paved walking loop, and are also grading the large field area so that it can be used as a regulation sized field for active sports such as football, soccer, rugby, etc., and also of course for casual recreation like throwing a frisbee.
We are also installing an additional parking area to relieve the existing and anticipated demand for more parking near the tennis courts and new multi-purpose field. Once the construction work is complete everything will be seeded. By next summer it's going to look a lot greener out there!
