10/17/2018

The Wild Spaces & Public Places (WSPP) and the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department (PRCA) invite you to participate in a neighborhood workshop to discuss the proposed redevelopment of Northside Park, located at 5701 NW 34th Blvd.  The workshop is Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 6 p.m. in the Eloise Page meeting room at the Senior Recreation Center, which is located at 5701 NW 34th Blvd.

Proposed improvements include additional parking and associated drainage, sport court renovations and additions, table games, a new playground, a splash pad, an outdoor patio area off the Senior Recreation Center and structures for seating and shade. Improvements to the disc golf course will also be facilitated as part of this project.

This project is funded with the Wild Spaces & Public Places half-cent sales tax, as well as a grant from the Rotary Club of Gainesville. The WSPP half-cent sales tax, collected from January 2017 to December 2024, will continue to create, improve and maintain parks and recreational facilities, and acquire and improve environmentally-sensitive lands.
