McKee Park Improvements Set to Begin
Improvements to McKee Park on Windsor’s west end will begin May 25, 2022, and will require a short-term closure of trails and greenspace, but the parking lot and boat launch ramp will remain open.
Over a three- to four-week period, crews will remove and replace all the asphalt pathways, install three new bench pads (with decorative benches to follow), and set concrete footings for eight new decorative light standards. Work will also be done to improve drainage, including new catch basins, and re-grading to raise up low spots. During this work, park users are asked to avoid the construction areas.
Once all the groundwork is laid, three exciting phases of enhancements will begin:
Phase 1 - Boardwalk and gazebo installation
Phase 2 - Trails, lighting, silos and benches
Phase 3 - Playground installation
There has been a slight delay in beginning the first two phases due to inclement weather, but the original fall completion date remains. By the end of 2022, a large new accessible playground should be installed as well.
More information can be found in the previous news release that was issued when the McKee Park improvement project was announced.
