The Road Ahead

The interior park road that has been closed at Jester Park since March 13, opened on Friday, June 16! We appreciate your patience while this park improvement project was taking place.

The nature center site is no longer just full of dirt! Throughout the month of June, work around the building site has continued with the addition of several rainwater detention ponds, along with the grading and paving of the parking lot. Contractors have placed electric conduit to serve the new building and foundation work for the Jester Park Nature Center will begin soon!
