"People can feel free to go up there and use that trail," said Blaine Lutz, Centerville City finance director. "The city plans to add landscaping, an irrigation system and grass in the spring."
The northeast park is located about 2150 N. 250 East. The turn to go to the park, from Main Street in Centerville, is just before crossing into Farmington. The pump house on the property is one of the park's most distinctive landmarks.
The three new trails in the park will eventually connect to the fire break road. The trail going up the hillside is approximately a half mile.
"You can go on a longer or shorter walk," said Lutz. "You can loop up one and go back down the other."
Farmington also acquired an easement to permit foot and horse traffic.
The trail for horses is located to the north. The trail to the east, however, will not serve equestrian traffic.
In one corner of the northeast park the city created a waterfall and in the other corner there are small stream channels.
The next steps for the northeast park are a pavilion and restrooms. Lutz also said eventually benches will be installed.
The city has not officially named the northeast park, however, the council has tentatively scheduled to select a name at the first council meeting in January.
Centerville is also working on developing a portion of the Porter Walton Park (next to the new library) this spring. City officials will take a closer look at architecture and design for a pavilion and the park.
