Lemmon Valley Park Slated for $125,000 in Improvements

The Washoe Board of County Commissions will consider on Tuesday a bid to make improvements to the Lemmon Valley Park.

“The playground which was originally installed in 2008 receives heavy use from the students at the adjacent Lemmon Valley Elementary School and improvements are long overdue,” said Washoe County Park Planner Dennis Troy. “Funding for the project will go before the Board of County Commissioners for approval on Tuesday. A remodel would not be possible if it weren’t for a generous donation from the Pennington Foundation.”

County staff is recommending to the board approval of nearly $125,000 for the improvements, funded by the Foundation.

According to staff, the improvements “include removal of existing surfacing material, demo/disposal and relocation of existing playground features to meet safety standards; purchase and installation of all project materials; installation and compaction of base material, concrete, drains and drain systems; and installation of interlocking rubberized tile surfacing. The new rubberized surfacing material will be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act….”

What about an indoors swimming pool ? North Valleys residents now have to drive all the way into town to go swimming.

It would be great to add a skate park. Those kids walk all the way over to north valley’s regional park to bike and skateboarding
