John Gurney Park - Changes in Store?

A park renovation plan has been presented to the Hart City Council for John Gurney Park. The park currently has 90 rustic campsites, but the council would like to see the park become more user friendly for local residents.

The plan also included reducing the number of sites by as much as half, adding water and sewer hookups, and paved parking.

Amenities which would be enjoyed by all park users include four baseball fields, a pavilion overlooking Hart Lake, and a community bonfire pit.
The campground currently nets approximately $40,000 annually for the city, and councilwoman Betty Root opposed reducing the number of campsites. City Manager Stan Rickard suggested that a committee meet with the consultants to further assess the plan.
