The park is located on the south shore of Lake Monroe, just east of downtown Sanford. The signature piece of the $1.4 million Phase 2 project will be a permanent, covered stage that city planners are referring to as an amphitheater.
In addition to the stage, the scope of work includes constructing a restroom building, decorative fountain, concrete walks and seat walls. The project also will require utility work, site lighting, landscaping and irrigation.
Bids are due Sept. 19, and the city is expected to announce the winning bidder in mid-to-late September. City leaders hope to have Phase 2 completed in time for Sanford's 2017 July 4th celebration.
