Flanders Park dedication tentatively slated for June 24
The City of Farmington, Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce and a former student of Flanders Elementary School, are planning a dedication ceremony for Flanders Park, tentatively scheduled on June 24 at 11:30 a.m. This city park is nestled in the Farmington Oaks and Meadows neighborhoods and new Riverwalk of Farmington development that was once Flanders Elementary School.
The Chamber will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the park, and the City will dedicate a tree. Former Flanders student, Sarah Davies, along with classmates, planted a tree when they were students years ago. Davies, who is very fond of Flanders, requested the tree dedication. She is taking the ceremony a step farther and hosting a block party for the dedication.
Neighbors to the park should see Farmington Public Services staff working to complete the park starting next week. Public Services will be bringing out playscape equipment and staging it; next the foundation will be poured, the mulch spread and a pathway put in. The plan is to have playground equipment, such as a loop climber, swing set and slide, installed by the time of park dedication.
“The new city park is a great way to bring the community together,” said Farmington City Manager David Murphy. “We hope to see former students, neighbors and families join us for the dedication.”
