As we were first to report in September of 2015, the park will see the large parking lot and labyrinth of ramps removed in favor of angled street parking on NW 8th and a gently slopping terrain.
The existing play area will remain as will the centerpiece gym, although the later will receive aesthetic enhancements including a covered entrance.
Several mature trees will remain and more will be added along with other landscaping.
The improvements will be funded by TIF money as well as proceeds from the 2007 General Obligation Bonds. Private donations will help complete the $1 million project.
The remodel comes as scores of new housing has been built in the surrounding area, with much more planned.
Red Andrews is the only city park in the entire Midtown district.
Work should commence this summer after bids are received.
