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.

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.
