The park is currently under construction and will open October 28, 2018 at 2pm. Opening day is open to the public and a reception will follow. If it rains, the program will be held in the church adjoining the park (First Congregational UCC).

Once completed, visit the park to see the interpretive path, relaxing water feature, and large-scale art project serving as the backdrop of the park. Over time as the park grows, programs tied to social justice will be launched that will be held at the park and in the community.
