Sterling Green is the City’s largest neighborhood park in terms of developable area and is highly visible and well-connected to the surrounding neighborhood. Like Sol Arnovitz Park, it is also one of the City’s least developed parks.
The Play Xenia process revealed a need for more seating, trails, a shelter and active recreation options. The proposed concept plan (see right) includes a new gravel trail system, a new gazebo, seating around the existing playground, and a new basketball court. Additionally, the plan includes replacement of portions of mowed-grass fields with wildflower/prairie grass areas to add some visual variety and beauty to the park.
The gazebo, basketball court and some tree planting are complete. Work on trails, seating and wildflower meadows will begin during the summer of 2017.
