Additional funding has been awarded to this improvements project. The "Improve Access to Highland Park" project was awarded $112,596 by the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund. And $450,000 is added for replacement of the play area. This work will be incorporated with the other project work and constructed in 2016.

The scope of this work for the project is to relocate and replace the existing ballfield to allow t-ball, coach pitch ball and U-9 and under soccer, as well as provide access and safe bleachers for all. The ball field relocation project will install ADA access to the ball field by providing hard paving around the new backstop, into the dug-outs and to the field, as required by ADA. Relocating the field will provide enough room on the south side of the field for an ADA path to the east side of the park and for an extension of the Cloverdale walk.
