This signature destination park serves as a central gathering place in the City’s emerging Village Center for family-friendly events, festivals and larger community programs throughout the year.
Confluence led planning and design efforts for the new Village Center redevelopment area by incorporating an amphitheater, pavilion, parking, pedestrian plaza spaces and lawn space that converts into an ice rink.
This new community amenity was designed to stimulate interest in redeveloping surrounding properties in the area, including a multi-story building on the current property. Our team assisted the City in coordinating these two projects to improve the relationship of the adjacent facilities. Amenities include the use of a walk-out basement providing community restrooms, concessions area and storage for a variety of city-owned equipment that supports the multi-use nature of this dynamic park space.
