Centennial Park Expansion Project
Over the next couple of months, the City will be working on the Centennial Park Expansion Project. This project will be a new venue space for downtown events and recreational uses. The parks expansion comes from the demolition of the building at 114 West Virginia Avenue and 118 West Virginia Avenue.
Unfortunately, both buildings were in a dilapidated state making it too costly to repair. By expanding Centennial Park, the goal is to entice not only citizens to visit downtown more, but also encourage new businesses to locate in downtown to take advantage of the park’s amenities and atmosphere. The park will include seating areas, a water fountain, a stage area for entertainment, public art, and much more!
