Plans for a park to be located across the street from Sunland Visitor Center in Eloy have been in development for over 20 years. Now, after a unanimous vote by the City Council, the city awarded a contract to Danson Construction to complete the project.
During Monday’s council meeting, Community Services Director Paul Anchondo presented the council with the proposed plan for the park.
The park, located on North Camelot Street in the Toltec area, will include a granite pathway, a ramada, a picnic table and one park bench. Landscaping for the park will include 15 additional cacti while keeping the existing trees that sit on the block.
In order to keep the project under its $300,000 budget, Anchondo detailed that the city had to forego an electrical component, meaning the park will not feature any lighting until next year’s Capital Improvement Plan is completed.
