This “Community Open Space” project is located at the southeast corner of 152nd Street and Meredith Drive and is a key corner located on a main arterial street in Urbandale. This area is also the northwest corner of the 200-acre Walnut Creek Regional Park (WCRP), which makes it an ideal location for an entryway “landmark” that identifies the WCRP.
Construction on the open space located at this corner (next to the new Urbandale Fire Station) is underway. The project will provide an entrance to the park that will include a natural setting with a trail, sitting areas, rain garden, landscaped areas and trees and public art.
It is anticipated this project will be completed by the fall of 2021.
