Brentwood Park renovations set to begin after Fourth of July festivities
Phase one of the Brentwood Park renovations will begin after the July 4th celebrations.
The construction work includes basketball courts, baseball fields and a dek hockey rink, council members said on Tuesday night.
The new picnic tables and umbrellas are now up on the civic center porch.
Officials are financing an estimated $8 million renovation of the park off of Brownsville Road.
