Changes are in the works for a public park in Union City.

Union City’s municipal government is accepting proposals from contractors interested in making improvements to the 24th Street Park, also known as Peru Park, at the corner of Central Avenue.

A notice from City Clerk Erin Knoedler states that the existing park is expected to be cleared in order to allow for the development of a new sprayground and playground equipment designed for children between the ages of five and 12. A new water fountain, decorative fencing, and an accessible ramp would also be installed. Electrical, plumbing, and drainage improvements will need be made on the premises.

Proposals are expected to be opened and announced on June 25, according to the notice.

Peru Park is not the only Union City park that could soon see modifications. Notices posted by Union City’s municipal government show that repairs are planned for the skate park on 38th Street while a dog park is expected to be replaced.
