Mariposa Park set to open

City's new mini-park plans dedication ceremony, activities

City officials will hold a dedication ceremony for Mariposa Park on Saturday, June 9, beginning at 10 a.m.

The ribbon-cutting and a community photograph will follow the dedication at 10:15 a.m., after which the park will be open to the public. There will be refreshments, and free games and crafts for children.

The park has a butterfly theme, a nod to its name -- mariposa is Spanish for butterfly. It was approved in September 2010. Construction began approximately one year ago.

Located between the west end of Dana Street and Mariposa Avenue, the ceremony will take place at 305 Mariposa Ave.
