The Lyon Park neighborhood’s Henry Clay Park is due for a makeover — starting this week.
Construction crews from the Falls Church-based firm Pivot Construction LLC are scheduled to start work on the park at 3011 7th Street N. today (Monday), per county officials.
The work comes three months after the Arlington County Board awarded the company a $1.4 million contract to re-do the basketball court, the playground, the picnic shelter, fences, and landscaping, among other upgrades.
“We are doing it!” read the county’s latest announcement. “Construction will begin on the Henry Clay Park renovations the week of October 21.”
Arlington expects the renovation work to continue until the end of 2020, and that ongoing construction may limit street parking.
Kentucky politician and one-time Arlington duelist Henry Clay is the namesake for the one-acre park.
