The mprovements under the project included fountains, a fishing pier, a nine-hole disc golf course, a walking trail, a dog park and a splash pad, which will be available for use at the push of a button. The banks of the Graham Park “lake” were stabilized, while new and updated playground equipment was installed

The Sports Facility Construction Company received the bid on the project. The park has been closed to the public since ground was broken in April.
