Know Before You Go

ParkFaber Pool and Park

Work is being done at Faber Park to construct a plaza type skate park with reinforced colored concrete pavement and cast-in place skate-park components set into the sloping topography of the existing park landscape. The water run-off from the existing slopes and the additional pavement will be captured by new drains which lead to leaching basins. Existing trees will be pruned and fertilized and new native shade trees will be planted at the edge of the lower open lawn.
Anticipated Completion: Winter 2015
