The City took a data driven approach to identifying the three viable neighborhoods eligible for this park relocation project. The 2016 Parks Master Plan includes extensive research on each of the 300-plus public park properties which were surveyed, categorized, and ranked while considering park service gaps, priority neighborhood study areas and targeted commercial corridors. Each of selected neighborhood has a:
Stable or growing population in need of quality open space
Small, decommissioned park in a poor location; and
Opportune, publicly-owned corner lot that is larger and more accessible to a greater number of neighborhood residents.
