City Council Approves First Two Phases of Memorial Park Redevelopment and Expansion Project

On October 15, 2019, City Council reviewed and contemplated the proposed master plan for the redevelopment and expansion of Memorial Park. Council directed staff to move forward with the design of the first two of three phases of the park to create an inviting, accessible, and thoughtfully designed park.

Council also directed staff to evaluate issues, including:

  • Making the midblock entrance on 14th Street more pedestrian friendly

  • Rotating fields 3 and 4 to increase permeability near the Metro Expo Line Station

  • Feasibility of incorporating 16th Street into the park

  • Activating the temporary practice field for passive recreational uses

  • Adding more flexibility for use and community amenities such as BBQs

  • Retaining a dog run

  • Considering all recommendations made by the Recreation and Parks Commission

Over 1,000 park users, residents, and stakeholders participated in the master planning process. Thank you for providing feedback on the expansion and renovation of Memorial Park! Your input guided the development of the master plan layout and programmatic concepts.
