Pernoshal Park Construction
In March 2012, the City began Project Renaissance, a catalytic public/private partnership covering over 35 acres of underdeveloped land in the Georgetown area (a 16-acre property and a 19-acre property). As part of this initiative the City is developing signature park areas across the 35 acres connected by a multi-use trail. At roughly 5-acres, Pernoshal Park is the largest of such park areas.
In September 2012, the City hosted a charette and public workshops to develop concept plans for the park areas and multi-use trail on the 16-acre property as well as the park areas and multi-use trail on the 19 acre property. The city began construction on Georgetown Park (two areas park areas on the 16-acre property) in April 2013 and celebrated the Grand Opening in May 2014.
In the fall of 2013, the city revisited the preliminary concepts for Pernoshal Park, and based on community workshops and further discussion with Council, reached final consensus in January 2014 regarding which features for this signature park.
