A two-acre urban greenspace, the park serves as a catalyst for development in the city’s downtown. It also serves as an active green space to the newly constructed Nickel Plate Flats, an adjacent private market-rate housing development. A challenging site, the area was bisected by an urban waterway. A new pedestrian bridge was introduced to unify the two sides and connect visitors to the ecological diversity of the Prairie Creek corridor. The park also features an amphitheater and performance stage for weekly community gatherings and events, an event space, play space and splash pad, outdoor beer garden with communal tables.

No items found.

REA worked with the city to create an inspiring design that better aligned with their budget while also being a visionary project that has catalyzed downtown. The space now attracts hundreds of weekly visitors to its splashpad and playground, and events.
