The event will include a ribbon cutting, activities and tours of the park. A bike valet will be available for residents who ride their bikes.

Visitors will find lighted tennis courts, a lighted basketball court, trails and a day camp with an archery range in the 20-acre recreation area. A BMX area remains under construction and is expected to open this summer.
