Carmel-Clay Parks will spend $5.6 million to develop a new phase of West Park, the city’s second largest park, IndyStar reports.
Indianapolis-based Gibraltar Construction won the job after submitting the lowest bid.
The work will be on 40 acres to the west of the developed portion of the 120-acre park at 2700 W. 116th St. and will include an 8,000-sq. ft. program center, a playground, plaza, prairie, trails, an entry drive off 116th St. and a parking lot.
Construction will start in April and be finished by next spring.
“We’re really excited to get the construction started on this,” Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation chief operating officer Michael Klitzing was quoted as saying. “We anticipate being open in time for summer camps next year.”
