Eastside Park Improvements
Through the generosity of First United Methodist Church, improvements to enhance the existing greenway at Eastside Park, located near the southwest corner of Riverside and Lemay, have been constructed.
Enhanced greenway improvements include: additional pathway lighting, new seating and planting areas, updated park identification signs, new benches - picnic tables - bike racks and BBQ grills, and a new soft surface path that follows the existing paved pathway through the park.
