Site Plan for Depot Park Area

Project Scope

The new park area will include three elements:

  1. Multi-Use Depot Building: a new structure with architecture inspired by the original railroad depot, that will include restrooms and an open-air multi-use space designed for activities such as picnics and small gatherings. 
  2. Greenway Multi-Use Path: A continuation of the existing City Greenway will connect the current terminus at McLean Road, along Railroad Avenue to Probart Street. The greenway will be 10 feet wide. The greenway will cross King Creek via a separated pedestrian bridge.
  3. Parking: The number of spaces is unknown at this time and will be determined during the preliminary design phase.

Other features may become incorporated into the site plan depending on available space on the site.

Where Will the Depot Be Located?

The depot will be constructed close to the original depot's location but not exactly in the same place. The location for the depot is the city-owned property along Railroad Avenue across from Commerce Street and the Comporium Warehouse. The property spans both sides of King Creek and is highlighted in blue on the map below.
