During this week’s Lincoln City City Council meeting, City Manager David Hawker said that there are a lot of park maintenance challenges for the city that they intend to meet over the next few years. But one park they may consider walking away from includes Sand Point Park on the east shore of Devil’s Lake; clearly outside the Lincoln City city limits.
Hawker said Sand Point Park is very much out of their way to maintain and so the city council should be aware of that fact. Hawker said that they’re not sure who exactly uses the park. He said “If it isn’t residents or tourists, there would be no reason for us to maintain it. We could thereby put our parks maintenance dollars to better use elsewhere.”
Hawker said he would give the city council a follow up report on Sand Point Park in the near future. He added that “Sand Point Park has never been the city’s #1 park maintenance priority, but it isn’t dead either.”
