A project to improve the Morro Road entrance to Atascadero Lake Park is now complete, the city announced Wednesday night.
The roughly $288,000 in changes were designed to improve the function and aesthetics of the park entrance along Morro Road from Portola Road to the Charles Paddock Zoo.
New landscaping, a pedestrian path, a new monument sign for the park and zoo and a lighted banner to advertise community events are among the additions.
Atascadero-based firm Raminha Construction Co. was the contractor on the project, which began in April. The work was funded through park impact fees that developers pay the city.
