Civic Center Park Opening on September 17
First phase of trails, and fountain
The first phase of trails in Civic Center Park will officially open to the public in September!

La Vista residents are invited to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, September 17, at 5 p.m. It will be held at the trailhead near Santa's Workshop.

While this is the first public opening for the 34-acre park, construction is far from complete on the project. Residents are invited to start enjoying this centerpiece of the City's 84th Street redevelopment efforts even though future phases of the project will necessitate periodic closures

Civic Center Park has been under construction since 2016 when La Vista Falls Golf Course closed and crews began the transformation process. Since then, the larger lake has been expanded to nearly four times its original size and the small lake has nearly doubled.

The most recent phase of Civic Center Park included the installation of irrigation and electrical conduit, in addition to trails and a fountain in the large lake.

The ribbon cutting ceremony will include the opportunity to see the fountain turned on for the first time, as well as walk on the trail.
