Little Saigon Park Development

Updated: March 21, 2019

Spring 2019

The most recent engagement opportunity for the project was held March 1 at the Tet Celebration at JW Architects. The event was hosted by Friends of Little Saigon. Approximately 80 adults and children attended the event. A final public meeting will be held this spring to unveil the preferred schematic design. Watch this space for details. Design and construction documentation will be complete in 2019 with construction beginning in 2020.

Thank you to everyone who attended the first public meeting August 26, 2018 at the Festi-Roll event and the open house style public meeting on November 1, 2018. Approximately 40 community members stopped by the open house to review three concept designs proposed for the new park and provide feedback. Presentations, notes and other meeting documents may be viewed below.

After working closely with the community to identify possible new park locations, SPR purchased the .27-acre site in 2013 to provide the neighborhood access to more open space in this urban area. The design will provide a connection between King and Jackson streets and will incorporate accessibility features in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. SPR will work with the community on the design and encourages community participation.
