Playground Review - Prairie Park

Playground Review - Prairie Park

WYOMING - Nestled along a busy road in a sea of apartment complexes is Prairie Park, a nice piece of green space with a walking trail, a skate park, and a nice playground contraption with slides and climbing pieces.

The park is located on Prairie Parkway between Byron Center Ave. and Burlingame.

The park includes a gazebo with one picnic table, water fountains and bathrooms.

Unfortunately the park offers no shade, even at 10am.  Other than that, another fun place to run your toddler around for a while.

Wyoming City Council Votes to Improve M-6 Pedestrian Trail

Wyoming City Council Votes to Improve M-6 Pedestrian Trail

From: http://www.ci.wyoming.mi.us

On Monday, June 4th, the Wyoming City Council voted to connect the sidewalk along Byron Center Avenue with M-6 Trail along the North side of M-6. Wyoming is sharing the $115,000 cost of construction with the Kent County Parks Commission.  
 
In 2004, the City of Wyoming updated Byron Center Avenue from a two lane country road to a six lane boulevard with public utilities and sidewalk extending South to Metro Way. The Michigan Department of Transportation completed the M-6 pedestrian trail in 2010, which crosses Byron Center Avenue at the foot of the West-bound M-6 off ramp just south of the Wyoming city limit. Connecting the trail to the sidewalk along Byron Center Avenue will allow trail users to cross the street at a safer location.

A Few Winter Reminders for Residents

A Few Winter Reminders for Residents

Right-of-Way

With the pending onset of winter, the City of Wyoming is requesting that residents remove items from the street right-of-way (ROW), excluding mailboxes. The City’s ROW extends from the sidewalk on one side of the street to the sidewalk on the other side of the street.  

Items that should be removed include:

  • Basketball hoops
  • Trailers
  • Unlicensed vehicles
  • Leaf piles
  • Toys
  • Large rocks

These items can hinder winter maintenance activities such as snow removal. Per City ordinance, trash receptacles are allowed on trash pickup days, but are not to be left out at the curb all week.
