Construction on the lake edge, which began April 9, 2018 at Papago Park, is now complete. The lake edge was reconstructed and stabilized to prevent erosion. The two ramadas closest to the lake were removed and replaced.



Following a public process, a design was selected for the ramadas near the water in Papago Park. Construction will be coordinated with improvements to the lake edge. The improvements are funded in the city’s current Capital Improvement Program budget.        Papago Ramada

In 2013, the City Council approved an asset management approach to fund improvements to neighborhood parks.  This plan first addresses public health and safety issues, followed by capital maintenance to extend the useful life of existing park elements.
