Community invited to learn more about the final design for Milwaukie Bay Park at April 24 open house
The North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District (NCPRD), in partnership with the City of Milwaukie, invites community members to review the final design to complete Milwaukie Bay Park at an open house on Thursday, April 24, 2019.
The public event is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Milwaukie Masonic Lodge at 10636 S.E. Main Street in downtown Milwaukie. Attendees will get a first look at the final park design and have the opportunity to talk with project staff on key aspects of the design, including how to get to the park, how art can be integrated, types of recreational programming, and how big park projects are funded.
In 2018, more than 1,200 community members commented on key park elements and design alternatives. The feedback and preferences received helped inform the creation of the Milwaukie Bay Park Final Design, including a children’s play area, interactive water feature, social gathering areas and events spaces, and opportunities for public art. For this third public meeting on April 24, community members are welcome to attend any portions of the event, including the open house, presentation and conversation stations.
- 6-6:30 p.m. Drop-in Open house
- 6:30-7 p.m. Presentation on final design
- 7-8 p.m. Conversation stations
