The City of Redmond asked community members to share their input in the new Downtown Park master plan process and on February 19, the people of Redmond answered. More than 40 community members attended a Public Workshop where they “claimed their stake in the Downtown Park” by sharing their thoughts on three topics:
  • the look and character of Downtown Park
  • recreation and event programming
  • and the vision statement for the park
If you missed the Public Workshop you can still help shape the design options for the new Downtown Park by filling out the workbook. This workbook will allow you to share your opinions and ideas about the look of the park, what types of activities you want to see at the park, and a vision statement for the Downtown Park. The City of Redmond will be collecting your input until April 30, so please be sure to download the workbook and “claim your stake in the Downtown Park”!

OVERVIEW

Every great city has a signature place that serves as a destination, an icon for the city, and a catalyst for economic growth. The Downtown Park will be Redmond’s signature park, and will create a place for community members to gather and celebrate. It will be a vibrant community space that encourages special events, arts, music and fun. The enhanced pedestrian environment in and around the park will stimulate economic activity in the neighborhood.

The park site is located between Redmond Way and Cleveland Street, and is bordered by the new 161st Ave NE on the west, and the Stone House Restaurant on the east. The grassy space that is present along 161st now is about ¾ acre. When complete, the ultimate size of the park will be two acres. 
 

2013-2014: Master Planning for the Final Park Development—Extensive public input will be sought to guide the selection of park character and features. This input will be used to develop the final design for the park.
