Empire Crossing Park

63145 lancaster, bend

Project Phase


Project Overview

The District acquired this neighborhood park located in the Empire Crossing subdivision, previously owned and maintained by the HOA.  Upgrades include a new playground, increased irrigation system, landscaping in the north east corner, and improving the trail to ADA standards where needed. A public outreach program was completed in October to garner neighbor feedback on the design concepts and a design has been completed based on Concept A.

Construction is currently underway and the playground and adjacent pathways are closed.  Construction is anticipated to be complete late spring or early summer of 2020.
