"We're very pleased with the cooperation we've got from the DeWitt Rotary," said Dr. Vince Sportelli, chairman of parks and recreation. "It's a great development and project for us, to maintain green space and recreational facilities in DeWitt and to capture as much lands [as] possible."
The park will stay open as best as it can while undergoing construction, Ball said.
