Charlie Vettiner Park | Boddingtons Grassy Pavers
Phase 1: Charlie Vettiner Park Master Plan, The $690,000 phase one project includes a new walkway, new parking spaces, speed humps, and drainage improvements.
The project scope includes improvements along Charlie Vettiner Park Road, including 34 curbed parallel parking spaces, a wooden rail to prevent off-road driving and parking, and speed humps to reduce driving speed through the park. A concrete walk will also be constructed, extending from the Easum Road entry, approximately 1,500 feet into the park to connect to the walking loop.
Stone headwalls will be added at culverts under the roadway to stabilize and help protect the road bed from erosion. The culvert inlets and outlets will be cleared and excavated where needed to improve drainage under the road. Plunge pools and step pools will be added to the two largest stream channels to slow the runoff and reduce erosion.
Additional parking areas are planned at the lake overlook and along the disc golf loop which will be repaved. The new parking areas will be constructed of permeable asphalt and grass cell paving. The disc golf area will have 33 parking spaces; the lake overlook area will have 17 parking spaces.
The project was designed by Environs Inc., Landscape Architects. The project contractor is Advanced Paving.
