FIREMEN'S PARK PROJECT UPDATE
Work has been quickly coming together at Firemen’s Park to substantially complete the project by the end of November. At this point the City is planning on a December 2nd opening of the Chaska Curling Center, Crooked Pint and event center, and park, which will all be open to the general public.
Work will still be occurring during the winter on such things as construction of the bridge across the lake and the finishing of the boardwalk system around the lake. Residents will soon see a barge in Clayhole Lake which will be used to assist in the installation of the boardwalk that will circumnavigate the lake. This is expected to be completed by the end of December.
One of the more noticeable projects that occurred recently was the installation of sod around the site, along with landscaping, and completion of the stage. On the inside of the building, all the detail work as far as the flooring, bar, furniture and equipment in the restaurant is being installed. Ice also began being made in the curling facility on Wednesday.
The entire project is progressing nicely and we expect it to be completed on time. We will keep residents updated as we move further into the month of November.
Below, are pictures of the event center and shelters from the lake side, an overview of the grassy area looking toward the lake, stage area and partial boardwalk, and nearly completed picnic shelters.
