The official groundbreaking of Civita Park is scheduled for this summer, according to Sudberry Properties.  The initial phases are planned to include a dog park, outdoor amphitheater, interactive water feature, community garden, exercise nodes, jogging path, two basketball half courts, restrooms and parking lot.  Planned finger trails will connect surrounding neighborhoods with the park.
