Status of Park: Park is open while construction is occurring. Select areas will be closed for ongoing construction. Construction updates will occur at the beginning of the month.

We are sad to have to take down any trees in the development of this playground, but to build the region's most unique playground it was necessary.  We are 100% committed to saving as many trees as possible and replanting almost triple the trees we needed to remove. 
We are removing 67 trees and replacing them with 167 trees and adding 1,000 plantings of shrubs, grasses and flowers to the area.
