March 2020

The City collected feedback on two proposed design concepts for the new park. We received feedback from 37 community members. Overall, 40 per cent of all respondents preferred Design Concept 1 (plaza), while 49 per cent preferred Design Concept 2 (dog off-leash area). 11 per cent did not have a preference.

The City will proceed with Concept Design 2. In addition to the off-leash area, there will be greenery, seating and shade.

Across the street at Senator Marian Maloney Park are many additional amenities, such as a playground, splash pad, fountain, green space and open plaza gathering area.

All the other great suggestions, such as sports courts, sports fields, ping pong, and outdoor fitness equipment, will be kept in mind for future parks in the area.

October 23, 2019

The City held a public meeting to provide residents with information about the existing site and two proposed concept design options.
