The City Council voted July 17 to name a new park after longtime City arborist Loren Wiser.
Wiser Park is new one-acre City park on DeGuigne Drive, located near The Vale, a new townhouse community. The Vale’s developer funded and constructed the park.
After the City held a public survey this spring to solicit names for the new park, the Parks and Recreation Commission reviewed the suggested names and made a recommendation to the City Council. The Council voted unanimously to name the park for Wiser, who died in 2007.
Visitors to Wiser Park will enjoy exercise equipment, barbecues and picnic tables, an open grass area and a half basketball court.
No opening date has been set, but the park is expected to open later this year.
