You're Invited! Come share thoughts, ideas, and visions in the first Community Design Charrette of the Herman Franks Park Emigration Creek Daylighting Project!
Did you know Emigration Creek runs underground through Herman Franks Park?
The Seven Canyons Trust seeks to daylight, or uncover, over 1,000 feet of Emigration Creek at the perimeter of the park to activate the space between the baseball diamonds and the surrounding roads. The restored creek channel will create a beautiful backdrop for the current uses at the park, without disrupting them in any way. By harnessing the history of place – where the creek once flowed freely through this neighborhood – we can pay homage to the hydrology that sustained the settlement of our valley.
The Seven Canyons Trust has secured an in-kind donation of $50,000 from Bockholt Landscape Architecture and support from the Franks Family Foundation to assist us with creating a community-based design vision to daylight Emigration Creek. The Community Design Charrette - One will be part of a series of two community workshops to gather residents' thoughts, ideas, and visions. With this information, we can create a responsive design and plan for this exciting, restorative addition to the park.
Free food and refreshments will be available!
