Since 1980, the City has subleased this property, and was responsible for its maintenance and upkeep.

We want to hear from you
Our pre-planning event held on October 3, 2019 was a great starting point. Over 50 people were in attendance, and shared their thoughts and vision for the future. Design features might include:
- Shade pavilion/stage
- Game space
- Play area
- Multi-use lawn
- Art Installation
- Seating areas
- Public restrooms
- Interactive water feature
“This is my third year at Central Washington and I intend to stay to get my masters,” said Savannah Fields, who’s majoring in environmental science at CWU. “I think it’s an opportunity to make more efficient use of our resources.
“I really think this is a really good time to show another side of what the city can do with more native plants, alternative resources and maybe a water feature.”
