Located along Cluck Creek, Bell Park will feature a pavilion, art installations, public restrooms and a play structure shaped like a mockingbird surrounded by wildflowers, according to a city news release.

Furthermore, the park will have a trailhead and shared-use path providing a connection to future trail networks and for the neighborhoods west of the Bell District, according to the release. Bell Park was designed to complement the design of the city’s new public library, which is adjacent to the park and is under construction.

“I love how the design of this park stays true to the community’s desire to create a unique gathering place in the heart of our city and how it integrates public art in a natural setting,” Mayor Jim Penniman-Morin said in the release.
