Sennott Park

Sennott Park

This very actively used park lies along Broadway at the intersection with Norfolk Street and is right next to the Area IV Youth Center. The area features multi-purpose playing fields, a playground, water play and basketball courts. One edge of the park was improved in 2010 with a walking path, ornamental fencing, park furniture and landscaping.


In 2009, the City began planning to construct a small sitting area or “pocket park” at the northeast corner of Sennott Park. This type of space was recommended in the Area Four Neighborhood Study and has been sought by community members for some time.

The space was designed to include a small number of new benches, a table, ornamental trees, decorative ground plantings and other landscape features arranged along the existing curved walkway at the corner of the park. This walkway was extended toward the entrance to the playground area, where a new community bulletin board and emergency police phone have been sited. A low ornamental fence was installed along the Broadway park edge.

A community presentation was held on May 13, 2009, where community members reviewed and discussed a proposed concept design. The final plan was presented and discussed on June 16.
