A park at the tallest point of Bayview Hill will be reopening Dec 3 after a $5 million renovation.

Plans for a renovation began being developed in Jan. 2014.

After a number of community meetings, the Recreation and Parks Department drafted a plan that includes two playgrounds, new seating throughout the park, improved ADA accessible pathways, new trails, a new picnic area, a new adult fitness area, improved lawn, improved sundial plaza, new entry and landscaping, and an improved skatepark.

This Saturday all of the above will be unveiled, with a grand opening celebration taking place in the park from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. There will be live music, free food, speeches by local community leaders and skateboarding.
