The city of Sunnyside is considering the possibility of turning a property at 1313 S. Sixth St. into a new park.
The property owner, City Manager Don Day announced this week, has expressed a desire to donate the property to the city.
Day said he believes the location, approximately two acres, might make a good neighborhood park.
“The city is evaluating the possibilities,” he told the Sunnyside Parks and Recreation Board this past Wednesday.
Day said the property was once a nursing facility, but has been vacated. He said the buildings on the property would need to be demolished to convert the property into a park.
“I think it’s a great location and the neighborhood could use a park,” he said.
The demolition of the buildings, however, may be cost-prohibitive.
“I just thought you should know,” Day told the Parks and Recreation Board.
