CENTENNIAL PARK RESTORATION PHASE TWO
Phase Two, which broke ground in summer 2019, focuses on the 19-acre zone that includes the Great Lawn, the West End entrance road, lighting and landscape improvements near the Parthenon. The Great Lawn will be re-engineered with sports field-quality turf and drainage improvements to help the lawn’s recovery after events. Two pedestrian promenades shaded by double rows of trees will border both sides of the lawn. The redesigned West End entrance will allocate more space to pedestrians, new entry signage, and new planting beds that showcase seasonal color. Additionally, the Parthenon will be illuminated with a new LED lighting system. The lighting is designed to celebrate the iconic structure’s classical architectural features and sculptural details.
