South Haymarket Park


The park, southwest of 7th and "N" streets, will include a playground and festival space, a dog park, play courts and other amenities. The park will also include a trail connection between "N" and "J" streets, providing a vital link between downtown and the trail system to the south. A new public plaza on the south end of Canopy Street will provide gathering spaces and include a proposed signature public artwork. The Parks and Recreation Department sought community input on the preliminary design for the new park and plaza area during the summer of 2019.
