About the Project
The Park Master Plan determined the major elements that would be included in Jennie Dean Park (diamond fields, courts, playgrounds, shelters, restrooms, public art, casual use space etc.), their general location, and provided guidelines for the look and feel of the park. This past year, the County has been working with the community to help work out some of the details for these elements as we develop our final design for the park. In April, we shared some draft concepts for the playgrounds, frontage along Four Mile Run Drive, restrooms, materials and site organization. Based on the input we received, we revised the plans to incorporate as much of that great feedback as possible and presented to the community the revised design in July. We will be sharing the final design for the park in October. Stay tuned for more details.
As part of this project, artist Mark Reigelman was selected to develop a site-specific public art work that will be integrated into the park renovations. Visit the Public Art Project Page for more information about the public art process.
April 6 & 11, 2019: We shared some options for various elements of the new Jennie Dean Park such as the playgrounds, frontage, restrooms and more. We also shared these options with an online feedback tool.
July 13 & 16, 2019: Based on the input we received in April, we revised the plans to incorporate as much of that great feedback as possible and presented the community the revised design at two open houses and an online feedback tool. The revised design also provided some new information about the shelters, historic interpretation and information about the public artist that had been selected to work on the project.
Sept. 3 & 4, 2019: Artist Mark Reigelman visited town to hold an artist talk and office hours where he met with the community to gain inspiration for his work.
Stay tuned for information about more engagement opportunities in late October to see the final design for the park.
