Public Input & Upcoming Meetings Project Details Timeline About the Artists
Public Input & Upcoming Meetings
Project artists and designers are gathering inspiration and learning about the history of Dorothea Dix Park and surrounding community. Visit the PublicInput project page to view community comments, find out about upcoming stakeholder meetings, and to share input and stories about the neighborhood. Virtual community meetings use Zoom, a free video-conferencing software.
The Plaza & Play is approximately 18 acres and sits on the southern edge of the park and will become the main entrance to Dix Park along Lake Wheeler Road, welcoming visitors travelling from around the City and across the State.
As described in the Dorothea Dix Park Master Plan, the Plaza & Play aspires to be an inviting and inspiring public space for all ages with one-of-a-kind play spaces, a civic plaza, fountains, gardens, and areas to cookout and relax with family and friends. The history of the site will come alive through public art, interpretive signage, and a rehabilitated historic house.
This project is part of the Percent for Art program.
