Deaver Park Renovations on the Way

The Arlington City Council has just announced that the Deaver Park Renovation project is set to start this September.

The site, which sits east of the Sublett Road and Highway 287 intersection, will receive a major overhaul in the coming year, including new trails and playground equipment, rebuilding of the pond overlook, new park monument sign and pond dredging.

The city has hired Jacobs Engineering Group for the design work, which should start in September and take five months. After the design phase, the city will have a better timeline for the construction phase.

The 20-year-old park needs replacements including the pond that is in need of dredging due to a large amount of silt deposition that has occurred over the years.

The city is planning to dredge the pond so that the shallowest part is at least 4 feet to 5 feet deep. As silt flows downstream to the pond, it builds up and increases the likelihood of vegetation growth, which can block views of the pond entirely.
