Sennott Park Renovation Project
As of September 27, 2021, the City's contractor started construction of planned renovations to Sennott Park. The playground, basketball courts, and a portion of the field are closed to the public. The City will leave approximately ¾-acre of the field open to the public during construction to allow access to a portion of this important neighborhood park.
Key components of the project will include:
- A fully renewed playground designed to encourage movement and creative, collaborative play
- An extended path to form a loop around the field
- Significant tree plantings and an improved field drainage system
- A new fitness station, renovated basketball courts, and an enhanced waterplay area
The City worked with the contractor to phase the project to allow portions of this important neighborhood open space to remain accessible during the construction period. The first phase of work will keep approximately ¾-acre of the field open to the public while the playground and basketball courts are under construction. The remaining field work will commence once the playground and courts are completed and reopened. The entire renovation project is expected to be completed by fall 2023.

The City's approach to planning and designing public spaces is guided by its Healthy Parks and Playgrounds goals, which include designing a network of parks and playgrounds so that they provide a diverse range of integrated play environments that collectively serve a full range of age groups and interests.
The vicinity around Sennott Park includes several small playgrounds and schoolyards, as well as medium sized parks with a variety of recreational facilities and play amenities, such as Clement G. Morgan Park and Green-Rose Heritage Park.
