Flood Park Project Transitions from 'Reimagine' to 'Realize'
Wednesday, December 22, 2021
In 2022, the Flood Park project will transition from reimagining to realizing a new park for the community. Building upon the vision developed for Flood Park in 2015, we will ask the community to join us again to help design the 2020 Landscape Plan features. Beginning in early February and continuing to the fall, we will host a variety of events, including meetings, community events and online activities to gather your ideas.
This will be an exciting process and we want to hear from everyone—family picnickers, neighbors, athletes of all ages, and our future—the young people in the community. Our hope is that Flood Park continues to be a special place in our community for all ages and serves our richly diverse neighborhoods.

Flood Park Working Group Formed
As part of the community engagement process, the Department has formed a Working Group of diverse stakeholder perspectives to discuss goals and preferences for how to implement the Landscape Plan. The Working Group includes 10 to 12 representatives that will meet up to six times throughout the project.
The Working Group’s purpose is to provide a productive venue to listen to and share a range of perspectives, seek shared understanding about how to balance the goals regarding the park design, and enlist community leaders in sharing information on the park design process with the larger community.
Working Group Meeting
The Working Group held its first meeting on Dec. 13, 2021 which can be viewed below.
