Project Ground Breaking: Smokey Point Community Park

Smokey Point Community Park broke ground recently, and Phase 1 is taking shape with the west plaza concrete formwork in progress. Located adjacent two historical sites of interest – Rex’s Corner and the Smokey Point Café for which the local community is named, the park will serve as a community/civic center and will provide 1.8 acres of recreation to the community, with the overarching vision of creating a community space where concerts, vendor fairs, and opportunities for community events can be held and bring the community together. Phase 1 of the project will provide a community plaza space with sculptural art elements, lighting, stage, exercise track and great lawn, parking, and bathrooms. Phase 2 of the project will provide a shelter and playground.
