The park will reopen its running track at the Reservoir following a yearlong renovation. The new terrain includes a redesigned curb system, after it suffered chronic erosion and drainage issues because of wear and tear. The 1.58-mile track will be renamed the Stephanie and Fred Shuman Running Track, in honor of the donors who paid for the repairs and long-term maintenance.
