The city says it will use the two acres in front of it to make the area into a passive, open, green space.

Walking paths, picnic space, new trees, seating and an open lawn play area will all be in the new park, according to the city.

Plans also include naturalized basins designed to treat storm water run-off.

The city says the park will open when current construction finishes, likely in early 2020.
