A recent inspection by the Greater Huntington Park and Recreation District identified $230,000 in needed repair work, ranging from restroom renovation to a new playground and concrete repairs.

Kevin Brady, director of the GHPRD, told council finance committee members that the district is “the lowest funded per capita” in West Virginia.

The finance committee recommended to the full council that a new contract be accepted for the maintenance and operation of Harris Riverfront Park.  A 30 day notice termination clause is provided should the city not forward funding on a regular basis to the board.

“Upon approval of City Council and when signed by the Mayor, [Harris Riverfront Park] will be maintained in a professional and workmanlike manner in accordance with our established standards,” Brady said.

A PDF downloadable copy of the repairs suggested at HRFP along with photos  can be found below.
