On December 13 at 5:30-8PM in the Tracy Aviary’s Education Room, the Seven Canyons Trust will be hosting the second community design charrette of the Herman Franks Park Emigration Creek Daylighting Project.
The Seven Canyons Trust, with support from Bockholt Landscape Architecture and the Franks Family Foundation, is crafting a community-based design vision to uncover Emigration Creek at Herman Franks Park. This project seeks 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.
At Community Design Charrette - Two, the Seven Canyons Trust and Bockholt Landscape Architecture will be unveiling two design concepts for the project. This will be the final community workshop to gather residents' thoughts, ideas, and visions. With this information, we will create a responsive, community-based preferred design and master plan for this exciting, restorative addition to the park.
Food and refreshments will be available!
