Inglenook Park Improvements Ribbon Cutting set for November 8
The city of Southfield will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of improvements at Inglenook Park on Friday, November 8 at 2 p.m. The ceremony will take place at 20901 W. 12 Mile Road, just west of Evergreen Road.
Improvements at the park include installation of a new ADA walkway and baseball field backstops and fencing as well as construction of a new shade structure. The project also included additional grading to achieve proper drainage as well as installation of permeable surface of brick pavers around the perimeter of the new structure to reduce water runoff. The new walkway also now allows for better access to the baseball fields and shade structure.
The improvements were made possible with the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources through a 70 percent of $400,000 matching grant with a required a 30 percent local match of $120,000 from the city.
The ribbon cutting will feature remarks from several city officials including Mayor Kenson Siver, City Administrator Fred Zorn and Parks & Recreation Director Terry Fields. Light refreshments will be served and the event is open to the public.
