Playground Structure at Peppermint Stick Park

Playground Equipment Peppermint Stick Park
Boulevard Park - 11000 Crooked Lake Blvd.
This brand new park has been graded and seeded to establish turf on the site. This area is the new location for the 4th of July carnival. 

The park will feature a splash pad, park equipment for all ages, landscaping and trails. The park will be the only one of its kind in the city; no other parks currently have a splash pad. The City received a 50% discount on the playground equipment by ordering in 2016. Park construction will begin after the 2017 Fourth of July celebration which is also held on the grounds of the Coon Rapids Ice Center. The project is possible thanks to money from the Park Bond approved by voters in 2013. The park will be completed in 2017 but the splash pad won't be operational until summer 2018.

Hoover Park - 
As of the fall of 2015, renovations to the City-owned section of Hoover Park (behind Hoover Elementary School) are complete. The parking lot off South Heights Drive has been repaved. Eagle Scouts have installed a rain garden. The worn out tennis court has been removed as well as the track. The park will have more green space and will feature a half mile walking trail that connects the neighborhood to Rockslide Park.

Woodview Park - 11540 Olive Street
This park has a new playground, benches, grills and decorative pillars added to the picnic shelter. A shelter has been added to the portable restrooms and maintenance work on the existing walking trails is complete. Improvements for this park have been paid for through general park construction funds.
