Plaza & Play

One of the first projects to move forward is the design of the Plaza & Play area along Lake Wheeler Road.  The plaza and play area will be a new, principle entrance to the park.

As described in the Master Plan, visitors from across the City and around the State will be welcomed with play spaces for all ages, spectacular fountains, great public art, grand plazas, cookout zones, gardens and shaded areas to relax and enjoy with family and friends.
