The Groundbreaking Ceremony is taking place at 5:30 p.m on March 27 under the live oak grove along Johnston Street. All are invited to come and celebrate this historic landmark in the community’s history.

The park will be transforming into an oasis that will include a new two-way bridge, a Farmer’s Market Pavilion, amphitheater, walking and biking trails — including a 2.5-kilometer loop, arboretum, botanical gardens, multiple playgrounds, an off-leash dog park, a mini-golf course, treehouses, a sculpture garden, and more. The park will also display some of the region’s most diverse ecosystems for residents and visitors to enjoy. 

Phase 1 of renovations is in action and will take around 18 months to complete. This area of construction is focusing on the front 60 acres of the park and is being done by Trahan Construction.
