Throughout the year, members of the Keizer City Council talk about various park projects.

Of late, such talks have often centered around the Keizer Little League (KLL) Park and projects at Keizer Rapids Park (KRP).

Those two parks were bookends on a four-park tour Monday evening. Members of the Keizer Parks and Recreation Advisory Board hosted the tour for councilors as well as city staff.

At KLL Park, Public Works director Bill Lawyer pointed out the top two projects – a new fence and city water connection – were currently underway. Kurt Barker, president of Keizer Youth Sports Association (KYSA), talked about the next projects.

“Now we go to smaller ticket items, like fences and bleachers,” Barker said. “This year we just put a band-aid fix on the bleachers.”

Barker said KYSA is now in the black and he feels that will continue.
