Courson Park closed in year-long project
OW Staff Writer | 2/2/2018, midnight
Courson Park, 38226 10th Street East in Palmdale, will be closed for approximately a year as construction work takes place a new pool and pool house as part of the Courson Arts Colony West (CACWest).
“Due to Courson’s advanced age, some of the utilities that we’ll be turning on and off during the construction are connected to other areas throughout the park,” said Keri Smith, director of Recreation and Culture. “With power and water available only intermittently during the construction, we will need to close the entire park until completion.”
“While the park is closed, however, we’ll be recruiting volunteers to help assist with park beautification projects,” Smith said. “Details will be announced soon.”
The Courson Arts Colony West (CACWest) is the second phase of a two-phase development known as the Courson Arts Colony. Phase I, Courson Arts Colony East, broke ground in March 2017. The project is a livable, interconnected new construction arts-oriented community of 81 apartment units in two buildings targeting single adult and families with incomes between 23.4%-50% of the Area Median Income, with a focus on low-income and homeless veterans.
CACWest will be designed to provide a safe environment with amenities appropriate for large families. The project will consist of two modern three-story buildings plus a stand-alone arts gallery, an artwalk, classrooms, small amphitheater and construction of a new pool at Courson Park.
Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the amenities at nearby parks including Desert Sands Park, located at 39117 3rd Street East, and McAdam Park, 38115 30th St. East.
