The planning and design team thanks everyone who participated in the public process for this park. We have gathered input from the November 2019 meeting and two online surveys to prepare the schematic design. 

We are finalizing the design which includes an open lawn, primary event space, play elements, seating terraces, accessible pathways, bio-swales, irrigation and landscape improvements. This project is also collaborating with SDOT on South Dallas Street, and 14th Avenue South bridge and South Orr Street accessibility, and circulation improvements for pedestrians and vehicles at this important open space connection between South Park's Business District and the river.
