Installation of brick columns and a new gate and sign at KidTown has begun recently.
West Point Main Street Association President Kristin Stevens said the ground has already been removed where the brick columns will be placed at KidTown so the ground can be leveled for the new gate.
"Personalized bricks will go on the columns, pavers will go between the columns and a new gate will be installed," Stevens said. "There is also some landscaping left to do and a new sign will be installed."
Growth Alliance Director Lisa Klutts said new security lighting was also installed.
Stevens said the construction on the park would be done in a few weeks, weather permitting.
Klutts said the personalized bricks were ordered last year as a fundraiser for the park.
Stevens said the bricks were ready, but they had not been delivered yet.
Stevens said residents would still be able to use KidTown while the new columns and gate were being installed.
"The park will remain open during construction," she said. "Caution tape will be put up around the gate and columns until they're complete."
Klutts said the pavilion at KidTown could be reserved for two hours at no cost, and reservation forms were available at the Growth Alliance.
