Description (Service)

After more than 20 years of restoration work, the newest park (which was once a quarry) is open to the public

  • features restored land, a lake, and habitat features to support native wildlife and vegetation
  • park development will occur in phases over the next few years, so accessibility to the park is still intermittent as restoration continues
