Onorato Park to See Improvements in Spring 2012
Firestone’s oldest park – Onorato Park – will continue getting a facelift in 2012. In late 2011, the old court was demolished to make room for a new tennis court that will be installed this spring. In addition to the new court, a restroom facility and water fountain will also be built at the park.
According to Firestone Engineer Dave Lindsay, construction on the tennis court is slated to beginning around April 1 and should be completed in early June. The restroom facility will be started in mid-May with completion set for mid-July.
The final improvements to Onorato Park are scheduled for 2013 and are anticipated to include a new 6-foot sidewalk within the park, a new picnic shelter, adjustments and enhancements to the irrigation system, reseeding disturbed grass areas with Kentucky Bluegrass, installing a barbecue pit and flagpole, upgrading the playground equipment and adding park benches.
