Frog is pleased to announce park enhancement plans are moving forward.

On October 25, the FROG committee met with the immediate Frog Park neighbors, along with City Councilman Dan Kalb, to share our updated design proposal.

Forty workshop participants were guided through the park in mid-April as FROG chair Carol Behr and FROG committee member Barney Smits described the remarkable history of the park from its conception to its hands-on construction by more than 1,300 community volunteers, and the continuing volunteer support for its ever-growing features.

Monday, March 9, 2015

Many people have been asking when the Frog Park enhancements will be ready.

While we received strong support for the enhancements, we are adjusting the design to address concerns raised by neighbors close to the park.
