Easton and his family said they like to visit the popular Rogers park and they hope the city works quickly to develop the park with new features.

ROGERS -- Design and construction contracts have been awarded on some portions of the renovation project at Lake Atalanta, and construction on the first of several trails is scheduled to begin in a few weeks, city officials said.
