The proposed district land, which still needs final sale approval, is east of the city’s land and south of the new road connecting Seventh Street to Sixth Street.
Rich Waldemar, recreation district commissioner, said that the extra land would enable the district and the city to expand the park’s offerings.
Vern Meenderinck, city parks director, said that the first development of the new park will be a disc golf course.
The recreation district has made a verbal commitment to fund the course.
"The rest of the area we are mulling over," Meenderinck said.
