Work Begins on Passive Park on North Oviatt Street

Old School Green Construction Crop

HUDSON, OH (August 22, 2019) – Work began the week of August 19 on the new passive park that will be constructed on North Oviatt Street at the site of the former Hudson Elementary School. Initially, crews are demolishing existing structures and pavement surfaces. The asphalt parking lot will be demolished, along with the basketball courts and playground equipment. The contractor will begin grading the site next week, weather permitting.

The new park will have a large circular concrete pathway with four paths leading toward the corners of the property. Brick pavers will create a play area on the eastern side with a bike rack. The park will include at least five benches. Two boulder memorials with plaques by the Hudson Schools will be placed between the circular pathway and play area.

As part of ongoing stormwater maintenance and improvements, a bioswale will be created to remove debris and pollution out of the surface runoff water. A bioswale is a drainage course with gently sloped sides that will be filled with vegetation and compost. On completion, the area will be landscaped.

A private donor provided funds to create the permanent passive park.
