R Park master plan
In 2014, the Citizens Fundraising Initiative for R Park began to raise funds and work in coordination with the City Parks and Trees Committee on a master plan for improvements to R Park.
The current master plan was approved by the City in early 2017. Highlights of the revised plan include the following:
- medium-sized picnic shelter
- small shelters over existing picnic tables
- multi-use sport green space
- focal points for art pieces
The plan also calls for R Park to be declared an arboretum. The first step toward gaining this status is marking the 27 new trees with signs giving information about each tree.
- Small Shade Shelters Completed!
- Sculpture ‘See Red Run!’ installed

Please note: the scope of work is subject to change based on available funding and priorities.
