Summit Point Park, a quaint .29 acre park in Chandler is getting a makeover starting this month. For those who aren’t familiar, Summit Point Park is in the heart of the neighborhood in the northeast corner of Elliot & Alma School Roads. The hope is to inspire residents, both young and old, to get outdoors and play.
Though small, the corner park has had a substantially positive impact on the community since its construction more than three decades ago. In order to make sure the park renovation will be well received, Chandler has developed a conceptual plan for the park that includes additions requested by the community itself. The most popular request? Outdoor fitness equipment.
In addition to the fitness stations, the park will also expand into a vacant alley behind to add space for cornhole games and a rubber-surfaced space for other sidewalk style games. Other improvements include a new water fountain, additional shade canopy, new lighting fixtures, benches, and picnic tables.
“Parks play an important role in the quality of life in Chandler. Investing in parks such as Summit Point Park ensures that Chandler’s parks are kept up to date and the recreational needs of the community are being met,” the Community Services Planning Manager for Chandler, Mickey Ohland, said in a statement.
