The New Map of Merrill Park

Here is the whole map.  Basically, the new construction will separate the cars and trucks from the people who want to enjoy walking – a new walking path will be constructed around the circle, safe from vehicles. 
The construction will allow for additional parking and new pedestrian pathways and bridges.
The county hopes to add about 150 new trees and shrubs for the park, replacing those that they are cutting down now.
The park, ball-fields, playground, and animals will be open during construction.  
A sign is in place saying cars will need to find a detour as of February 25th, until the road is fixed.

Here is a little closer on the new traffic pattern...  there are lots of details on here that are very interesting.

Should be good - what do you think?


  1. Thank you for posting this. It was painful to see those big old gorgeous shade trees chopped down, but hopefully the new design will be safer for the many of us who frequent beautiful Merrill Park. Looking forward to the unveiling!

  2. Can someone post the distance of the walking lap..Most people say it's a half mile, but other's say it is longer, Any 1 know for sure the distance? thanks
