Lot to be repaved at Rotary Recreation Park

Reconstruction work begins on Monday and expected to wrap up in July

Work to reconstruct the Rotary Recreation Park parking lot is scheduled to begin on Monday.

The new parking lot design will improve traffic flow, lighting and storm water management, says the City of Red Deer.

Construction will be phased in order to maintain operations and to provide limited accessible parking near the Recreation Centre, Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery and Golden Circle.

While parking is limited on site, parking is available at the gravel lot near the tennis courts, the Sorensen Station parkade and the surface parking lot (P7), adjacent to the Blue Grass Sod Farm Central Spray and Play on 47A Ave.

It is expected that the new parking lot will be complete by July.
