REDMOND, OR -- Redmond’s Centennial Park expansion project is getting closer to becoming reality. Project Manager Troy Rayburn says interest and involvement in designing the future park has been incredible. "The citizens of Redmond have taken this process, regarding the park expansion, very seriously. They’re involved; they’ve produced some wonderful ideas. We’ve incorporated many of those ideas into the park design."

 

Rayburn tells KBND News that feedback will be on display at an open house, Wednesday afternoon, " A couple things that rose to the top that was very important to the community: More green space, more open space. So, we incorporated a lot of those amenities into the park design. A place for our retirement community, our senior citizens, they want to be able to walk and enjoy the outside, so we’ve incorporated wide sidewalks. A lot of flower beds, tree canopy and natural shade."
 
The final open house for the project is Wednesday, 4-6 p.m. at City Hall. Construction is expected to cost about $2.5 million dollars and will get underway in 2018, in the block between the existing Centennial Park and City Hall.
