We have some great things happening at the Mountain View Park this spring and summer. Our City employees are busy putting together new bleachers for the soccer fields and tennis courts. Once the ground warms up, they will start installing a couple of small playground items and a new swing set that includes a glider, tire swing, regular swing and infant swings. A new volleyball net was placed at the park and we are working on getting the lighting working so citizens can enjoy volleyball games in the evenings. New picnic benches will be placed at the park for families to be able to get out and enjoy the outdoors.
The Splash Pad will be getting some fun new attachments added as well as benches installed for parents to sit and enjoy watching kids playing in the water.
We’ve coordinated efforts with South Sevier High School and the tennis courts will be receiving new backboards for players to use to practice hitting balls individually. This will be a great addition to the courts.
Some of you may have noticed a new building being built near the tennis courts. This is being built to house the transformer needed to install lights for the soccer field as well as storage rooms for the soccer and tennis teams and storage for lawn mowing equipment for the parks department.
Lots of fun things going on. We will keep you updated on the progress!!
