Members of the construction team for Gary Keith Park recently met to review the irrigation design and material costs for Phase II of the park project.
“The positive response from our community for this project has been amazing,” said Olivia McCormick, project chairwoman.
Gary Keith Civic Center Park is a park project under construction by the community for the community, McCormick said. Partnering with Community Pride Advocates, Inc., the committee has been at work on the project for the past 21/2 years.
Phase II work includes irrigation and landscape installation, lighted walking paths and electric service to the parking lot lighting; cost estimates are being developed and are expected to be completed in early February with construction to begin in early spring.
Plans call for the 22-acre park to include an amphitheater, a flag park with picnic tables, ramadas and walking paths, as well as lighting, paved parking and restrooms.
Construction of the amphitheater is estimated to cost
“Businesses and contractors continue to donate supplies and materials either at a discount or as 100 percent donation,” McCormick said. “The park project has also received cash contributions from civic groups and individuals.”
Donations to date have exceeded $500,000, McCormick said.
Phase II is the second-largest part of the project.
“All the landscaping goes into this phase,” McCormick said. “A community wide capital campaign has also been initiated. Look for donor information in your Bullhead City sewer bill. All donations are welcome and will be put to good use.”
Gary Keith Park Committee representatives are available to present the project and discuss donor opportunities with local groups.
