Park Project Updates

  1. Sunny Square Park

The City of New Brighton has begun construction on Sunny Square Park! A number of improvements and enhancements will be made. 

  • New open air shelter with permanent restrooms (on a timer for open and closing!)
  • Ballfield enhancements
  • Fitness Equipment
  • New playground structure with shade structure and benches closer to the ballfield
  • Regional trail connection
  • Combined parking 
  • Pleasure skating rink in the winter in the open lawn area

Crews are on site starting the work. Trees have been marked for removal. Some trees are being removed because of project enhancements, but a large number are because of Emerald Ash Borer, tree health, overcrowding, etc. The City Forester has plans to replant trees on site in the near future!
