Bondurant park to get makeover with amphitheater

August 28, 2023 by No Comments

The Bondurant City Park is set to undergo a significant revitalization in the coming years, introducing a range of fresh facilities to the local community. These enhancements encompass a splash pad, an amphitheater, and an ice skating ribbon.

Officials of Bondurant have meticulously strategized a comprehensive revamp of the downtown park situated at 201 Main St. S.E., responding to the area’s rapid growth. The eventual outcome will yield numerous spaces dedicated to leisure and entertainment, all aligned with the city’s identity represented by its logo and color scheme of blue, yellow, and green.

Following recent endorsement by the City Council, a conceptual design for the renovation has been sanctioned, and efforts are underway to conclude the design phase before initiating construction, tentatively commencing in November. Initial components are projected to be in place by May, coinciding with the Bondurant Summerfest. These early stages encompass activities like demolition, land grading, sidewalk and utility enhancements, as well as the installation of novel playground structures.

Subsequent to the June Summerfest, efforts will be directed towards establishing a splash pad and the foundational infrastructure for an ice skating ribbon – both of which will be novelties for Bondurant. The slated completion date for these initiatives is December.

The estimated expenses for these forthcoming additions are approximated at $4.9 million. Subsequently, a secondary park shelter will be erected, followed by the construction of a fresh amphitheater. The forthcoming park renovation will also encompass novel landscaping, expanses of greenery, and a designated area tailored for food trucks and hosting farmers markets. Costs for these elements are yet to be finalized.

The City Park transformation represents just one facet of Bondurant’s ongoing park development endeavors. Recent undertakings include the restoration of Eagle Park, the establishment of a new underpass beneath Highway 65, and the creation of a dog park by Lake Petocka. Additional ventures are already in the planning stages, including the potential establishment of a new regional park in the vicinity of Grant Street and 15th Street Southeast.
