  • Brief Description

    Southeast Community Park is located at 328 Susan St, south of Susan St. and Park View Drive. The initial concept of the park was developed in 2012 and is currently in Phase 3 of the design. This phase includes the additions of the amenities consisting of an amphitheater, concession-restroom area, all-inclusive playground and a fitness court. These areas will be surrounded by a walking trail and park shelters. Phase 3 is slated for completion in August of 2023.


    This Fitness Court is a collaboration project between the City of Garden City, Blue Cross and Blue Shield and National Fitness Campaign. https://nationalfitnesscampaign.com/ The Fitness Court presents an opportunity for a local artist or artists to create a statement piece that enhances and enriches the park. The mural will also address the public input received in a survey conducted by the City of Garden City to display more local art.


    The City is issuing this RFP in accordance with applicable laws that allows an agreement to be entered with an individual or individuals to create and submit a concept design of the proposed art piece. This art piece will then be transferred into a vinyl wrap that will cover the Rear Wall and Front Wall Windows of the Fitness Court per the Local Artist Fitness Court Template depicted in the commission document.
