BOW Received Bids for Renovations to Dickmann Park
ANDERSON – IN – Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr. announced today that major improvements are coming to Dickmann Park located at 1135 Meridian St. in Anderson. The improvements will be in three phases. The Board of Public Works received bids for phase one at today’s Board of Works meeting. The funding for the first two phases will be provided by the City of Anderson Community Development Department using Community Block Grant Funds.
Mayor Broderick explained that his Community Development Director, Lelia Kelley worked with the Anderson Parks Maintenance Superintendent, Tom Tacket and the new Parks Superintendent Jama Donovan on the project.
The new improvements for phase one will include the installation of a new playground surface in the playground area, two new pieces of playground equipment and a new canopy. Phase two will include repairs to the interactive play fountain and the surrounding areas. Phase three will include repairs to the Three Graces Fountain. It is expected that phases one and two will be completed prior to the beginning of the city’s Summer Concert Series programming that will kick off June 7th.
This complete renovation of Dickmann Park is one of 11 parks renovated within the last three years. The list of renovated parks includes: Belmont, Walnut, Horne, Geater, Shadyside, Edgewater, Pulaski, Martin Luther King, Jr., Jackson and Fairview Park.
Mayor Broderick said, “This is a continuing effort to upgrade our parks in order to provide quality of place for our citizens. We have been engaged with ongoing improvements in our parks and we intend to announce more upgrades to be made to our parks this summer over the next few weeks. This is a good example of how Community Block Grant Funds can be used to improve our community without expending local tax dollars.”
