Project History

In 2016 the MPRB approved the South Service Area Master Plan, including a plan for Peavey Park (also known as Peavey Field Park). The park plan determines the type and location of facilities, the general areas of mown and naturalized landscapes and the general area of trees, and the extent and general location of pathways. The park plan does not determine the specific design of the facilities or the location of minor amenities, such as benches, drinking fountains, and signs.
