A New Neighborhood Park Planned For Greenacres

What was historically alfalfa fields, is now going to transform into City of Spokane Valley's newest park: Greenacres Park. The park will be located on the northwest corner of Boone Ave and Long Road and will cover 8.3 acres. 

Construction will begin between mid-May and the beginning of June. They plan to have the first phase of construction finished by this fall. That first phase will include turf and irrigation of the site to be the foundation for a sand and water play area.
