Franklin Park Improvements Public Meeting

  • Date: 06/01/2019 6:00 PM  
The community is invited to an informational meeting regarding proposed improvements to Franklin Park, 147 S. Franklin Ave. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 1, at the park. Images and a site plan for potential improvements will be displayed. There will be a brief presentation, including cost estimates, followed by a question-and-answer period. The neighborhood association is hosting a potluck in conjunction with the meeting at the park for those interested. Attendees should plan on bringing a lawn chair as seating is very limited. In the event of rain, the meeting will be held at Zekes, 3329 Lincoln Way.
Franklin Park is a 4.5-acre neighborhood park in west Ames and features a playground, basketball court, and picnic area. Planned improvements to the park include adding an east-west path through the park, enhanced lighting, and a shelter. Public input on the proposed plan is requested in order to finalize the plan. Renovations could begin mid to late summer depending on the feedback received.
Those unable to attend the meeting can send comments to Ames Parks and Recreation Director Keith Abraham at or call him at 515.239.5349.
