The proposed renovation of the eastern section of Arsenal Park will be presented to the Town Council Tuesday night in a meeting to be held online.

Project designers from CDM Smith will present the plans for the $1.6 million project during the May 12 Council meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. The agenda item is an informational presentation, and no vote will be taken.

The meeting will be televised and the public can join by computer or phone (info below).

The section of the park being discussed is Phase A, which is the section of the park that abuts the Arsenal Yards property. It includes two lawn areas (one of which is terraced), paths, a pavilion with picnic tables, and an areas where a stand of trees will be planted.

The section will sit at the end of a major walkway through Arsenal Yards. The proposal calls for the park entrance from that walkway to have a gateway with a steel girder supported by two brick columns.

The estimated cost of the project is $1.54 million without the pavilion and $1.65 million with one.
