The major makeover of Yakima's Randall Park makeover is underway. Yakima City Parks and Recreation Manager Ken Wilkenson says the park in West Yakima on South 48th Avenue is undergoing a $1 million facelift. Changes include new basketball courts, new bathrooms, a redesigned pond area, new playground equipment and 2 new picnic shelters among the future changes. Wilkenson says they hope to finish all the work by spring of 2017. The work is being funded by a combination of public and private dollars and donated work by Rotary Clubs of Yakima.
The city received $150,000 in anonymous donations and a $500,000 state grant the city is matching with park funds and other donations.
