Henderson is developing a park that will be more accessible to people with disabilities.
The nearly 8-acre adaptive use park is planned for the southwest corner of Russell Road and Stephanie Street and will feature a baseball/beep baseball field, accessible soccer fields, basketball courts, playground equipment, a splashpad, events plaza and other park amenities such as a garden and shade structures, according to the city.
Park project manager Amy Wojtech said the park has a projected price tag of roughly $8.5 million.
Wojtech said the city submitted the project to be considered for federal funding in 2017 and was awarded last year.
Henderson is contributing about $85,000 to the project, a city spokeswoman said.
This month, the City Council approved a contract to start the design of the park. Henderson wants to start building the park in late 2022 or early 2023, Wojtech said, with construction expected to take about a year.
