Anyone knows when the proposed park off Silberhorn dr & Morningside Dr will be ready?

That's the way it looks. Under the Parks & Rec Current Status all I could find was the Park Site #44, Blue Ravine & Parkway Drive North, and then things relating to irrigation and planting lots of trees along the Rodeo grounds trail.
Park #53, which I believe is the one being questioned, was being kept a passive park as of 1/7/2014 Parks & Rec meeting.

Park Site #44 will now be called Econome Family Park. Plans are in place for two full sized synthetic turf soccer fields (they will be lighted). Two basketball courts and two tennis courts (also lighted). 136 parking spaces. A kids play area is planned as well. City and architects are considering other options including volleyball and bocce ball courts, though those were not approved in the original plan. This plan is going forward with a tentative completion of sometime in 2017, possibly sooner.
As for the other parks,that is something that the city needs to address. The city of Folsom has too many unfinished parks (such as Livermore) and parks that are are mired in the planning stage (I believe it totals 22) and the city should make them a priority but too many excuses as to why they aren't being completed. Maybe being so nice and cozy to developers over the past 20 years and having such a low lot fee is mostly to blame.
