Portions of West Park will close on or after Aug. 24 for planned improvements.
The main entrance to the park and southern half of the trail system, which includes the pond boardwalks, will be closed. The Jill Perelman Pavilion and adjacent adventure playground will remain open.
Upgrades in the park include replacement of the existing splash pad and playground, renovation of the restroom building and main shelter, and improvements to the roadway and parking facilities. The park is expected to fully reopen in summer 2021.
The improvements are funded by Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation and Clay Township.
