New Trees at Simms Park

Simms and Miller Parks Construction Update

June 3 Construction Update

This week at Simms Park contractors began planting 13 new trees throughout the park. These trees not only replace the six (6) that had to be taken out for construction but add to the parks total tree cover!

At Miller Park the concrete pads for the benches located around the walking path have been poured as has the new court area. Now we wait 30 days for that surface to cure before we can paint and line it!

Both parks remain closed to the public due to the heavy equipment in use. For more information on park projects please call the Park Services office at (248) 796-4630 between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
