City Schedules Chinquapin Park Recreation Center Geotechnical Work

For Immediate Release: July 8, 2015

Contractors for the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities will be on site beginning the week of July 13 to obtain soil samples at 3210 King St. The public will see specialized vehicle-mounted equipment and temporary survey flags and stakes with colored ribbons as part of the survey work. Work will occur during daylight hours and, weather permitting, will take approximately 10 to 12 business days to complete.

For safety reasons, the work may require areas of the site to be closed for short time periods. To minimize impacts to the community and to expedite the work, survey flags and stakes should not be disturbed or altered.

Soil sampling is a part of conducting a geotechnical assessment of the site and adjacent hillside. In addition, these tasks are steps of planning analysis related to the future of the facility.

For additional information or to report concerns about the fieldwork, contact Ron M. Kagawa, Division Chief, Park Planning, Design and Capital Development at or 703.746.5489.
