See The Future of Village Park in 3-D
Take an up-close look at what Sussex's Village Park could look like if the village's plans for major renovations at the park win Village Board approval.
The Sussex Parks and Recreatio Department has released its most detailed renderings of the Village Park, visually outlining in 3-D what each section of the park is slated to transform into over the upcoming years.
And you don't even need 3-D glasses to see them.
From the splash-pad to the enormous baseball quad-plex, the digital drawings of the park were ordered so Sussex could get a more specific total price tag. The original engineering firm, R.A. Smith National, estimated in September that the total park renovation would cost roughly $11 million based on initial drawings.
Sussex officials say that number is expected to change as a new cost estimate is being produced by another firm, Stantec.
Flip through the photos above and read more about each section of the park. Also, read the in-depth interview with Sussex Parks and Rec Director Amy Flaherty on the details of the park and the potential impact on taxpayers.
Editor's Note: The park's cost of $11 million was updated to say it was an estimate based on preliminary drawings in Sept. That price is expected to change, and the project would happen over up to 20 years to distribute funds.
