Park visitors will find the southern third of the park closed for construction.

Construction is underway. In order to expedite construction, longer weekday construction hours and Saturday construction may be considered.  During construction, street parking will be restricted and the sidewalk on one side of the street may be closed. Traffic controls, closures, and detours will be implemented during various construction phases and may cause traffic delays in the area.

The City is underway with design efforts for the Rengstorff Park Aquatic Center Project.  The public can find project updates here. On January 16, City staff presented three scope options to the Parks and Recreation Commission (PRC) comprising of varying sizes of lap pools and compositions of recreational elements.  After staffs’ presentation and hearing comments from the public, the commission voted to recommend that Council adopt “Option 2” (a 10 lane - 25 yard x 8 lane - 25 meter pool with a larger recreational/ leisure pool) as the preferred scope.  Subsequently at a City Council study session on February 25th, Council directed staff to begin the Conceptual Design phase using “Option 2” as the scope.  Staff will return to the PRC and Council later this spring to seek further input on the resulting conceptual design and request any necessary funding adjustment to complete the design.
