New Ed Caruthers Park on Raitt and Myrtle streets

Project Description:

A new park at Raitt and Myrtle streetsThis project will bring to the city a new 1.18-acre neighborhood park on two City-owned parcels at the northeast corner of Raitt Street and Myrtle Street.

  • Skatepark
  • Playground equipment
  • Exercise area
  • Drought-tolerant landscaping
  • Walkways
  • Security Lighting
  • Restroom
