What is being built in "Dad" Perry Park on the east side of Monterey Way?
Kathy Fode, recreation superintendent for Lawrence, said the project will be new recreational facilities for the park.
"It's going to be a basketball court, tennis court, sand volleyball court, a shelter, restrooms and play equipment," Fode said. "The project is headed by Rowan Green, the turf management supervisor."
Fode said the project is just one of the city's projects that will be provided for by the 1-cent sales tax.
Project director Rowan Green said the project is scheduled for completion later this summer.
