PUBLIC INVITED TO DEDICATION OF NEW PARK

Mayor Coleen J. Seng invites the public to the dedication of Aster Mini-Park, N.W. 8th Street and Aster Road, at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 12. The new park features a main play structure and multiple climbing boulders, the first of their kind in Lincoln’s park system.

The Fallbrook Homeowners Association and NEBCO, Inc. provided funding for the park. Construction of the improvements was a cooperative effort that included volunteers from the neighborhood and NEBCO. The Fallbrook Homeowners Association has agreed to accept responsibility for mowing the grass and maintaining the landscape, while the City will maintain the play features for their continued safe and comfortable use.

“The City of Lincoln very much appreciates the opportunity to partner with NEBCO and the Fallbrook Homeowners Association to create a wonderful opportunity for families in the area to experience safe and enjoyable outdoor recreation,” said City Parks and Recreation Director Lynn Johnson.

The park dedication will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony, remarks from Mayor Seng and Parks and Rec Director Lynn Johnson, as well as comments from representatives of NEBCO, Inc. and the Fallbrook Homeowners Association.
