The Arlington Forest Civic Association has identified Edison Park as their priority project for Neighborhood Conservation funding. During the scoping process, County staff met with Community members to identify which park improvements were desired and appropriate for the space. Staff developed a concept plan and cost estimate that was approved by the Civic Association. The scope plan was presented to the Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee during the June 14 funding round and approved.
The renovations will replace the existing play area with two play areas for 2-5 year-old and another for 5-12 year-old. New furnishings, fencing and a gate separating the playground from the street will be installed along with ramps, railings and walls to improve accessibility from the street and to the park trail. Native plants will be added, and storm-water management improved.
Edison Park is a quarter acre park in the Arlington Forest Neighborhood. It features benches, a tot lot and a nature trail connecting the park to the adjoining Lubber Run. The park suffers from run-off from the surrounding neighborhood and is partially in the RPA.
About the Process
The Working Group will have its first design meeting on Feb. 13 at Barrett Elementary School. The next step will be sharing the design at the Arlington Forest Civic Association meeting on April 24.
