REDMOND, WA - The public is invited to attend the upcoming groundbreaking for Downtown Park, where the first shovel will be turned to make way for the final phase of the project. The Downtown Park groundbreaking celebration will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, at the project site on Cleveland Street between 161st Ave. NE and Leary Way NE. The evening will include a short program, groundbreaking ceremony, and opportunity for attendees to ask questions and learn more about the park.
“This groundbreaking marks an important milestone for the park and Redmond residents and businesses, as we take our next step in creating a complete and vibrant downtown area. The park will be a gathering place for the neighborhood as well as provide a unique venue for events for the entire community in the near future,” stated Mayor John Marchione.
Actual construction is expected to start in June and the park is projected to open in summer 2018.  Planning for the Downtown Park included extensive public input to determine key features—which include a pavilion and stage performance area, splash pad, dining grove, and raised lawn with deck and seating.
Parking for the ceremony is available in the public parking lot at Leary Way and Bear Creek Parkway (entrance off of Bear Creek Parkway), as well as on-street.
