Update May 8, 2023: CBJ and Admiralty Construction will begin work on the Savikko Park Improvements Project on Wednesday, May 10. Work is expected to continue into August. The project will include drainage improvements in and around the shelters, replacement of playground equipment and safety surfacing, installation of new street and area lighting, construction of accessible parking stalls, and other miscellaneous work.
The Log Cabin Shelter will be closed for use beginning July 10 and will remain closed through August 15. Some portions of the parking lot may be closed to parking during the project. Pedestrian access to the shelters, public restroom, Treadwell Mine Historic Trail, and beach areas will be maintained but may have alternative routing at times. Please follow all traffic control signage and pedestrian detours within the project area.
During this summer season, the Savikko Park Complex will be undergoing renovations. The project includes replacing playground equipment and installing new safety surfacing, replacing pathway, parking lot and roadside lighting with new LED fixtures, improving drainage in and around shelters (Savikko #1 and Savikko #2 Log Cabin), installing new park signage and improving accessibility to parking stalls near the shelters.
Any potential reservers of the shelters at the Savikko Park Complex should be aware that their access to some parts of the park will be limited or entirely unavailable throughout the summer season.
