Centennial Park Expansion project rendering

The City will be expanding Centennial Park with the addition of an approximately 1-acre parcel west of the existing park. The  expansion was designed by SZABO Landscape Architecture in partnership with a nine-member citizen task force, following ten months of community outreach efforts. Public involvement led to park amenities such as open space, a civic plaza and gathering area, a small stage area for events, benches, tables, a children’s reading nook, a history walk, and plenty of shade trees. 


CENTENNIAL PARK EXPANSION PROJECT

 The goal of the Centennial Park Expansion Project is to accomplish the following:

  • Create a gathering space and civic plaza for the community, drawing  people to downtown's commercial core 
  • Serve as an open-space corridor,  connecting  City Hall east to historic downtown
  • Complete the vision for Centennial Park (originally constructed in 2010)
