Project funding source
The master planning, design development and redevelopment of Hartkopf Park is being funded through the $26 million Park Bond Referendum that voters approved in November 2018.

- Create a lighted walking loop trail in the park

- Preserve and maintain the oak savanna in the middle of the park
- Improve parking to reduce on-street parking
