Formerly owned by a botanist, the Stutz Park property consists of approximately 6.8 acres and has several large mature trees of uncommon species. Stutz Park is located at 531 West 3700 North, south of The Shops at Riverwoods and east of the Provo River in Provo.
Provo City has been creating a master plan that considers issues such as aesthetics, overall image, cost to construct and maintain, minimal disruption of the neighborhood and traffic during construction, design effectiveness, safety of persons and property, water conservation, outdoor recreation and effective use of available land. The master plan will include concept drawings, construction drawings, construction specifications and accurate cost estimates.
The public is invited to attend a Design Open House this Thursday, March 27, 2014 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm in the Provo Recreation Center’s Multipurpose Room. Three potential designs for Stutz Park will be presented at the open house. Residents will be able to give comments and feedback on the design.
The design for the park will incorporate as many existing Sequoia, Cedar, Evergreen, Linden, Ash, Maple, Hawthorne, and Walnut trees (among others) as possible. Under consideration for the park are: tennis courts, picnic areas, pavilions, a kayak/canoe drop off, playground, workout stations, open turf for recreation, and adequate parking.
