Design Development & Construction
Based on the approved Master Plan, Regional Parks worked with a design consultant along with members of the community team develop the detailed design plans for the park.
The Park Steering Committee met on May 26, 2016 to update members on the administrative progress made to date including project funding and environmental permitting efforts. The Committee was also engaged in a discussion regarding key areas and features of the park including the Teen Zone, play area, kiosco area, and the memorial landscape. Members offered suggestions, helped to refine the agenda, and proposed materials for the first of two Design Development Community Workshops.

The construction documents were developed based on input received at the above series of public workshops and steering committee meetings. Design and engineering drawings and bid documents were completed and put out for competitive bidding in October, and four bids were received on November 9, 2016.
Due to a bid protest following the evaluation period, the County Board of Supervisors elected to reject all bids in December 2016, and directed Regional Parks to revise and re-release an the project plans for bidding.
Updated plans and bid documents were advertised for bidding at the end of January 2017, and the project was awarded in March to the low bidder, Argonaut Constructors. Construction began on May 30, 2017 and was completed in May, 2018. The opening celebration was held on Saturday, June 2, 2018.
