Brooklyn begins $314,000 trail addition and renovation at Marquardt Park

BROOKLYN, Ohio — The $314,000 revitalization of Marquardt Park in Brooklyn began earlier this week with the work expected to be finished in late October.

“The first phase begins with the renovation of the path, which over the years residents have been requesting,” Brooklyn Recreation Commissioner Jack Abbruzzese said. “The existing trail that goes through the wooded area of the park on the perimeter is going to be renovated and resurfaced.

“We’re also adding a connecting path through the neighborhood that extends Richard Drive through some of those dead-end streets. It’s a six-foot asphalt walking path wide enough for biking; however, there won’t be any bike lines on it.”

Residents in the area have also requested such a path that connects Richard Drive to Autumn Lane located on the northern boundary of Marquardt Park.

Construction has started on the revitalization of Brooklyn Marquardt Park, which includes renovated and added trails, as well as new playground equipment and pavilion.
