Loew Park in Old Brooklyn getting major upgrade

The $3.5 million dollar plan includes a regulation-sized soccer field

CLEVELAND — Changes are coming to Loew Park in Cleveland's Old Brooklyn neighborhood thanks to a multi-million dollar project from the city.

Cleveland City Council President Kevin Kelley made the announcement on Tuesday evening. 

The city plans to add a regulation-sized soccer field, complete with grandstands that can hold as many as 750 people, plus a press box. 

The $3.5 million dollar project also includes screening trees, a new walking path, new playground equipment, and underground engineering to eliminate flooding. 

The Loew Park project is expected to be completed sometime next year.
