News and Events
Many of our projects can be seen by simply driving through the city: new playgrounds at Rolling Oaks and Bunche Parks, sports lighting at Norwood Park & Pool, Myrtle Grove and Rolling Oaks Parks, and the construction of the city police department to name a few.
Betty T. Ferguson Recreational Center: Located at 3000 NW 199 Street (just 2 blocks west of the Dolphin Stadium) is the home of a 54,000 sq. ft. community center equipped with an indoor basketball court, swimming pool, dance studio, fitness gym and men/women locker rooms. Additionally, a state-of-the-art artificial turf football/soccer field with running track, sports lighting and bleachers that include a press box is located just east of the community center. Located east of the community center is our new Amphitheater.
Rolling Oaks Park: The renovation of Rolling Oaks Park is one of the City’s greatest endeavors. It involves the transformation of this heavily wooded park space into interactive recreational green space. More 2,000 pine trees provide an excellent backdrop to the new football/soccer fields, 3,000 sq. ft. concession stand, 4 new, lighted tennis courts, 4 refurbished basketball courts and new playground design by Kompan Playgrounds, Inc. Construction has begun on several elements of the park.
Bunche Park & Pool: This park has been a long standing neighborhood park for several decades with little improvements made. Several improvements have begun this year including a playground and rubberized surfacing. New parking is currently being constructed along the swale of the park. Sports lighting and new bleachers were also added along the football field.
