Project Description

In mid-2023, Public Lands began a playground replacement project at Jefferson Park. In addition, a constituent CIP funding application was funded to install a lighted pathway along the perimeter of the park as well as several other smaller amenities.

Jefferson Park was also selected as one of the Reimagine Neighborhood Parks to receive funding from the Parks, Trails, & Open Space General Obligation Bond (GO Bond), approved in November 2022. Neighborhood parks funded by the GO Bond aim to invest and activate underutilized parks to increase access to green spaces and quality parks. The vision and desired usage of the park will be guided by the input we collect when we conduct community engagement. The completed project will feature new and improved amenities that are prioritized by residents and celebrate the community this park serves.
