REDMOND, OR -- The near-decade long Expansion of Redmond’s Centennial Park has reached an end.


Redmond Mayor George Endicott says they built the park in 2 phases. "The first phase, of course, was Centennial Park, which we opened on our Centennial in 2010, and then we decided to obtain that other property, and yeah, it was another 9 years from the original Centennial Park ribbon cutting."

 

Endicott says the $2.2 million project creates a centralized location where important downtown buildings are connected by green space, with places for the young and old alike to find something fun or relaxing to do. "We decided to do this Civic plaza. So, from the Chamber of Commerce to City Hall, and try and put a bunch of green space right in the middle of downtown, so the people would feel comfortable to go there, take your children to play in the water park, have lunch there, so there's a lot of nice, interesting features, as part of the park." There's also the reading space, near the library, in honor of Redmond citizen, Kae Eberhard. "All the people that have talked to me about it, just love it, I mean, they're raving about the new park, and how it looks, and so I'm just hoping that we get a good turnout and it turns out to be a popular place." In addition to the reading area, it’ll feature a small grove of trees and an event stage, the water park, restaurants and retail opportunities. 


There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the Park's Grand opening at 530 Tuesday, followed at 6 pm by the Redmond Police Department's community building event, the National Night Out.
