Juniper Valley Park construction set to begin again ‘in the coming weeks’


Construction at Juniper Valley Park is expected to resume in the upcoming weeks after work was delayed last summer, according to the city Parks Department.

The $5.25 million project was put on hold in August of 2021 after inspections during construction showed that segments of the storm drainage system needed to be replaced.

“The contractor is hard at work behind the scenes obtaining permits to address unforeseen drainage infrastructure issues,” said Megan Moriarty, a press officer for the Parks Department. “On-site work is expected to resume in the coming weeks.”

According to the Parks Department, the project will not increase in cost. The contractor, Applied Landscape Technologies, is in the process of obtaining permits from the Department of Transportation, Department of Buildings and the Department of Environmental Protection to start working on the drainage system.
