Redmond’s Downtown Park is now open
The grand opening event included a ribbon cutting, community picnic, a performance by Lucia Neare’s Theatrical Wonders and more.
The rain was not enough to stop a sizeable crowd from attending the grand opening of Redmond’s Downtown Park on Sept. 15. The event kicked off with Mayor John Marchione, City Council president Angela Birney and Rep. Joan McBride of the 48th Legislative District sharing a few words about what it took to make the park happen, followed by a ribbon cutting. Youngsters also had a chance to play in the park’s splash pad. The event also included a performance by Lucia Neare’s Theatrical Wonders as well as a digital art installation at the Pavillion in the park by artist in residence Maja Petric.
