Park on Santa Fe River spring gets cleaned and stabilized

A cleaned-up spring and new bathrooms are the highlights of a renovated Rum Island Park that was introduced Tuesday morning ceremony by Columbia County commissioners and others.

The popular park on the Santa Fe River was closed for about a year while the $300,000 project was underway.

Visitors and county parks officials check out the renovations and clean-up to the spring head area at Rum Island Spring and Park during the reopening of the park north of High Springs on Tuesday.

“It looks so good. The (spring) bank looks really nice and pretty,” said Lindsey Garland, spokeswoman for the Suwannee River Water Management District. “They added grass for stabilization, so that looks very good.”

The district kicked in $150,000 for the work. The county got another $150,000 in legislative appropriations and contributed some in-kind services.

One new feature some people might not like is an entrance fee. Rum Island had been free but a $5 per car fee is now charged. Annual passes can be purchased.

The 44-acre park off County Road 138 near Fort White includes includes a boat ramp, picnic area and

Walton’s Mill dam removal, park improvements outlined in Farmington

FARMINGTON — Selectmen on Tuesday evening were told design plans for improvements to Walton’s Mill Park Plan should be nearly complete in about two weeks, with a final plan ready in October.

“We’re moving along in our design phase, we’re at 75% of the design,” Maranda Nemeth, project manager for the Atlantic Salmon Federation, said.

Voters approved the $1.2 million Walton’s Mill Dam project in November 2018, a year after a fish passage study was approved. The project will remove the dam so endangered Atlantic salmon can travel up Temple Stream to spawn.

Dam removal and park improvements will be done in three phases with construction starting in 2021, Nemeth said.

“We’ll use the existing sluice gate, after ice out in the spring,” she said. “Opening the gate will result in a more gradual drawdown. It usually rains a lot in the spring. It could take up to 45 days.

Off-leash dog park in Cherry Creek State Park to close temporarily

The popular off-leash dog area in Cherry Creek State Park will close temporarily for four days in early October for maintenance and improvements.

The area, which sees over one-million visits by people and their pets annually, will be closed from Oct. 5 through Oct. 8, according to a news release. The same area was closed in October last year for upgrading. State park staff, contractors and volunteers will work on trails, improved access to the site and recovery of natural resources.

“We are dedicated to being active care takers of this highly valued public land,” Park Manager Jason Trujillo said. “It has gotten to the point where it is so busy down there we can’t get any work done without interrupting experiences of visitors and this maintenance work cannot be conducted safely while the area is open.”

Improvements this year will include two new pedestrian access points from the parking

Reopening ceremony shows off improvements at Naperville’s Knoch Park

New athletic fields, walking paths and other amenities have been completed at Naperville’s Knoch Park, culminating a roughly two-year partnership between the park district and Naperville Unit District 203.

Park board President Mike Reilly said during a grand reopening ceremony Thursday for Knoch Park that “we had the need to expand pickleball to four courts because it is one of the fastest growing sports in the Naperville Park District, which I never ever heard of three or four years ago.”

Renovation transforms Somerton Park apartment into modern marvel

But if they knew what was inside one of its residences they might change their mind about taking a moment to soak it all in.

A jaw-dropping renovation has transformed the one-bedroom apartment at 5/20 Phillipps Street, which is on the market with a $490,000 to $540,000 price guide.

Tired and dated just months ago, the residence is now more modern, light and open.

Owner Matt Causer, who revitalised the apartment through his business Eco Constructions, said he had a plan from the moment he saw it.

“As soon as I walked in the door I knew what I was going to do,” he said.

“I’m thrilled with the outcome, it’s amazing, I really love it.”

Mr Causer said the renovation, which included knocking out and moving walls, took about four months of intense work to complete.

The Collier County School District is looking to the future for eCollier Academy only months after launching the virtual learning model during the coronavirus pandemic.

At a school board meeting Tuesday, board members voted unanimously to approve a remodeling project contract for one of Calusa Park Elementary’s buildings to service eCollier Academy staff, students and parents. 

The construction project was already underway prior to board approval because it was “time sensitive,” according to board documents.

The district provided students four school options for this year: on-campus, Classroom Connect, eCollier Academy and home education.

The eCollier Academy allows students to learn with flexibility so school work can start late or early in a day depending on a family’s home situation.

The remodeling of one of Calusa Park’s buildings, which has about five classrooms, and nearby area is costing the district about $830,000.
