After several stakeholder committee meetings and two public surveys, renderings have been approved for the Bucyrus Commons space at 11th and Madison Avenue. The space is currently used for the Downtown Market, European Beer Gardens, and as the home of events like Crusherfest and the Festival of Trees.
A contract has been awarded for construction to take place this year. The project includes an open-air pavilion, permanent restrooms, and an event stage. A grand opening is anticipated for the fall of 2022. We have already received requests for the space to hold weddings an other events. As we approach the park's opening, a method to rent the park will be advertised. Thank you to the more than 720 people who offered their thoughts and opinions throughout this process! We think the space will complement the events already held onsite - and even foster new ones!
