The future of LaSalle Park, now Ralph C. Little Wilson, a hundred-year-old gardener, is excited. In its current state, the garden is not very attractive and their favorable conditions are imperfect.
It’s nice to have a dog park, but when you know what else is out there, it’s very sad. Then there’s the pavilion band, which is rarely used. Throw in some softball fields, a few soccer and soccer fields, a swimming pool and a water playground, and the park can be seen in almost every other park in town, and it seems a pity because it’s located on the beach.
But it’s all about change. Enabled Wednesday, January 27th UB Regional Institute will hold a virtual information session to share the latest updates related to the park’s renovations.
Although much of the garden has deteriorated over the years, there have been some bright moments – an investment in the Centennial Pool and a splash pad, and an ongoing investment in Skate Plaza (the third phase – the cup component – continues soon). There is also an improved dog park (Barkvor) in the refurbishment work that dog lovers all over the city are waiting for.
One day, this garden will be a prime place on the beach with a pedestrian signature bridge (replacing the current bridge of Hudson Street), an aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly feature and many other promising design elements that will change the image of this garden environment that was later neglected.
The upcoming virtual information session will include city and foundation officials, members of the design team, and the community focus group.
Land acquisition for Ralph C. Wilson, Centennial Park is scheduled for 2022.
