About the Park


This 15.5-acre site was designed through an intensive public input process in 2009. Phase 1 was implemented in 2010 and includes many passive features such as shelters, benches, a decorative fountain and 0.8 mile of trails.

Environmental Friendly


The park also includes components installed as demonstration features for various environmentally friendly green techniques. These include permeable pavers, bio-basins and drip irrigation for stormwater quality purposes. There are also LED street lamps to reduce electrical use and the park’s carbon foot print.
Playground
The park features an adventure playground with elements such as climbing boulders and a climbing net. This playground is designed for children ages 6 - 10, though there are elements for younger children too.

Prairie Meadows


Additionally, prairie-meadows were planted to reduce mowing costs, increase stormwater infiltration and provide a varied, beautiful habitat for butterflies, birds and other wildlife.
