On Friday, April 21, the City of Covington celebrates the grand opening of Father Hanses Park and the completion of its first phase of improvements. Located in the Lewisburg neighborhood, featured renovations and amenities include the installation of playground equipment, benches, signs, and a picnic table with a small shelter.
Working closely with the community to gather input and feedback, Parks & Recreation Manager Rosie Santos stated, “Based on a Health Impact Study conducted by the Health Department, we determined the Lewisburg neighborhood was in serious need of a park space both as a place for community to gather and for residents to have access to physical activity opportunities.
“As a result of the neighborhoods’ response, we are optimistic the park is going to have a positive impact on the community.”
The City will begin Phase 2 park improvements before the end of the year. Improvements feature the installation of a single hoop basketball court. As the City continues to engage with Lewisburg residents, it will make the final determination as to whether a community garden is a desired component to the park.
Snacks and activities will be included at the grand opening event. For more information, click here.
