Jim Hamm Pond Phase 3 Development
The final phase of park development is now underway. In 2013 design will be completed for the amenities noted on the Jim Hamm Pond Master Plan done in 1998. Some modifications will be made for budget and long term maintenance reasons, however the program intent will be provided. A new amenity, a natural play area, will also be included if budget allows. This amenity provides a simple play element for children in keeping with the natural area intent of a District Park.
Phase 3 will provide the following amenities as budget allows:
- Bird Pergola with interpretive panels
- Bird Blind
- Viewing area with a raised bench
- Trail along 17th Avenue
- Natural play area
- Landscaping and limited irrigation
Work will also include utilization of dredged material from the pond. Dredging was managed by Engineering Services. A new pond outlet was also constructed. For questions on that work, please contact Jon Robb at email@example.com.
The master plan has been marked up to better reflect work intended as part of the Phase 3 improvement project. Please find that plan at this link. Phase 3 Master Plan Work
