GreenWorks is currently working with Newland Communities and Hillsboro Park and Recreation on the 4-acre Neighborhood Park. This park is located south of the Greenway’s Discovery Zone Park and creates a link from the Greenway to a future elementary school.
GreenWorks has been task with creating a diverse program to enhance the park and give the community a unique user experience without overlapping program between the Greenway and the future school. Other important goals include safe pedestrian access to the park from the school and Greenway and incorporate the neighborhood trail that traverses the park.
This neighborhood park is an important connection between school and park, and residential and education. Program includes a circular path that circles the park and oak tree but also connects the park to the greater South Hillsboro community by neighborhood trail. The park supports all ages and abilities and includes a large play structure, nature play, bocce ball courts, a fire pit for relaxation, a skate pod and an contemplative flowering tree grove. In addition there is a central flexible lawn space that can host sports, games, and entertainment.
GreenWorks is working with an architect to design a restroom park pavilion that will be located at one of the main entrances.
Currently the project is embarking on a land use process and is proposed to start construction in mid 2020.
