Redmond Celebrates Quartz Park Opening

REDMOND, OR -- Redmond officials held a ribbon cutting for Quartz Park Monday.

Parks Planner and Project Manager Maria Ramirez tells KBND news residents provided valuable input for the first city-built park in 22 years, “Open space, the picnic pavilion, fully-plumbed all-season restroom, additional parking, bocce ball and horseshoe pits were some of the things that were requested, and those were what we were able to fit into the entire space.”

Ramirez says the 6.4-acre complex helps complete the southern end of the Dry Canyon trail, “So what this does is it really connects our north and south entrances together, and allows people to come park here, use whatever elements throughout the 4-mile canyon that they’d like. And then also get back to their cars and their homes.”

She says they've heard lots of compliments from kids and parents on the playgrounds, in the three months it's been open.

The park also has a bikes skills course, and landscaped and natural open spaces.
