Lights for two City park facilities are set for installation this summer after 16 lights and poles were salvaged from the Price Fields Renovation Project.

Twelve of the lights will be installed at Robinwood Soccer Fields, located at 2200 S.E. Frank Phillips Blvd., and four will be placed at the City Skate Park, located in the Lee Lake Complex on Adams Boulevard east of Silver Lake Road.

“We were able to salvage 16 athletic field light poles with metal halide fixtures from the Price Fields Renovation Project, and we’re planning to repurpose that equipment at the Robinwood Soccer Fields and the City Skate Park,” said Director of Engineering Micah Siemers. “We have had multiple requests for lighting at these facilities, so this is no doubt welcome news.

“We’re working on the design now and hope to advertise for bids for construction by mid-February. If all goes well, installation could begin by late spring or early summer.”
