Chinese Reconciliation Park Phase 3

Project Description

The Chinese Reconciliation Park Phase 3 project includes the architectural/engineering design and construction of the following enhancement features:

  • Fencing designed with Chinese motif to screen park guests from the parking lot and nearby road.
  • Signage designed with Chinese motif, including but not limited to a welcome sign, two interpretive signs, ADA parking signs and other miscellaneous parking signs.
  • Parking lot of 30 to 40 spaces, including earthwork, drainage, paving, striping and code required landscaping.
  • Two up-lights at the Fuzhou Ting near the back corner of the park to enhance illumination and security and upgrades of the existing lights underneath the bridge to light up the parking lot.
  • Landscaping enhancement with plants including irrigation where needed.
  • Removal of approximately 1,000 cubic yards of metals contaminated soils.

Project Update

The project reached substantial completion on September 16, 2015. The majority of the project is complete with the plantings, fencing, lighting and shoreline work completed and the parking lot addition open to the public. The project is currently suspended until the signage can be completed and installed. It is anticipated that the "Welcome" signs and two interpretive signs will be installed in March 2016.
