By August, piles of earth will be transformed into the new Ridgely Manor Park with plenty of green space, places to walk and places to play.

Construction on the Yakona Road site began early in April with a brief groundbreaking ceremony on the site on a sunny May 3.

Now in the drainage stage with heavy earth movers and pipes scattered around the 2.5-acre site, construction is expected to last about eight weeks, according to Mandy Stepp, president of the Ridgely Manor Community Association.

“We’re looking at an early August completion,” she said.
