Final job finished for Lockwood Park for 2018

Lots of great improvements were made to Lockwood this year, including the new stage and the basketball court.  The court took three kicks to get it right!  After the court was finished to our specs, a keen basketball player suggested adding another 7′ to its length creating a full half court.  We agreed and he volunteered to do the concrete pad.  Amazing.  This past week the final work was completed when the fence was built.  Thank you Josh Doornekamp, Frank Huth, Joel Kimmel and the rest of the 2014-2018 Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee and Public Works Supervisor Peter Evans.

Remember, no tax dollars have been used for the improvements to the park.  Lockwood Foundation gave a generous grant 4 years ago that required matching dollars to be fund raised by the Village.  And the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee and others did it!   Fantastic Team!  Thank you.
