Park Boulevard Park

The Park Boulevard Park pedestrian bridge is going to be closed starting Monday, March 22 for deck and railing replacement.  We will be working on the bridge and the approaches and it will not be accessible for crossing during the project.  We expect the closure to last about two weeks depending on the weather.  Signage will be posted on site.

 If you have any questions please contact Worthington Parks and Recreation at 614-436-2743.

Huntley Bowl Park

The Huntley Bowl Project will regrade the bottom field area of the “bowl”, clean out some of the invasive brush around the channel that carries the water, re-establish the boulder spillway and plunge pool, and install a new outlet structure at the southwest corner of the bowl.  Additionally, the old stadium seating and stairs will be removed.  The project is the result of severe downstream flooding and erosion.  The Huntley Bowl was originally designed as a flood control structure but hasn’t really been functioning well due to development over the last 30 years and changing climate patterns.  The project will increase the ability and capacity of the Huntley Bowl so it will hold more water more often, and allow it to release downstream at a slower rate.  This will help reduce downstream erosion, sediment pollution and help the city meet Ohio EPA requirements for storm water quality and quantity.

 The project is slated to take up to 120 days which means the Huntley Bowl will see construction activity on and off until June 22.  Once the construction is complete and restorative planting of grass and trees has occurred, access to the bottom of the bowl will be limited until the turf is established.

Aside from the removal of the concrete sidewalk along the top of the stadium stairs, there’s no construction taking place along the top of the bowl.  The path will remain and IF the gates are open people should be able to make use of the path.

For any additional questions please contact the Worthington Service & Engineering Department at 614-431-2425.

Pingree Fountain

The fountain is finished with the exception of the hot box and heater which is on order.

Linworth Soccer Field

The Linworth Soccer field refurbishment project began on August 15. The project will include killing off existing turf, removing dead turf, grading work, filling holes, leveling irrigation valve boxes, and will end with seeding. The field will be transitioned from the current mix of rye and bluegrass to a turf type tall fescue blend. The sports turf is more durable and takes less water so it is better for play and maintenance. The project is projected to be completed by the end of August (2019) but the field will be closed until the turf is adequately established. We are projecting an estimated date of reopening to be Fall of 2020.
