CLAUSEN PARK RENOVATION PROJECT
The St. Ansgar Park Board is currently planning a renovation project for Clausen Park. Clausen Park is a main-stay in our town- filling an entire city block. It is comprised of shelter houses, a gazebo, modern restroom facilities, play equipment, and green space for children to play. Because the park is kid friendly, there are many children that play there daily and use all aspects of the park.
Currently, the St Ansgar Park Board is updating the old equipment (some of which is dated prior to 1985) and making the playground ADA compliant (handicap accessible). The breakdown of the project is as follows:
