Van Lierop Park Master Planning
In the East Valley area of the City, to the east of Shaw Road and north of Pioneer Avenue are 18 acres of land purchased by the City in 2015. This area is one of the few remaining areas within the City that could be developed into a community park with space to potentially include multiple sports fields. The City is currently developing a Master Plan for this site to discover what recreational opportunities would best fit the location and the community. The Master Planning process will establish the programs and layout for Van Lierop Park. The process establishes the framework within which smaller projects (phases) can be designed, funded and constructed. Working with the community and stakeholders, staff and the consultant team MIG-SVR will draft the Puyallup Community’s desired program for the park, establish priority elements and recommend a phasing approach. This is your opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas on this project.
