Water Mist Feature in the Playground: The Friends of Ronan Park have received a grant to install a water mist feature for children in the playground. This water mist feature was included in the original design of the playground, but was cut due to lack of funding. Construction is scheduled to begin in late July or early August, with completion in September. FoRP will share details about the new feature at the meeting on Tuesday, July 10th. Please come hear more about this exciting project, and to learn how community feedback has been incorporated into the plan. Save the Dates!
