This park received the 2015 American Public Works Association Project of the Year award.

This charming park is nestled in the neighborhood just southwest of the Plano Street Bridge on Chase Avenue.  With the help of funds from the Statewide Park Program, the project to build this park took off in 2009.  Features of the park include a walking trail that joins the Tule River Parkway, two play areas to entertain different age groups, a splash pad, a half basketball court, two covered pavilions and a sports field.  During the final phase of construction, we turned to the community for help with the name.  The ‘Name the Park!’ contest let citizens give us their ideas and we received over 50 submissions.  The Parks and Leisure Commission had the tough job of narrowing down the submissions and then the City Council made the final selection.  The name of the park brought about new developments including a memorial wall with plaques of local fallen heroes.
