A “Performance Park” is being built on the Near Westside to offer a multi-usage space to promote health, recreation, arts and more accessible parking. This project is funded by TCI, Onondaga County Save the Rain Program, NYS Regional Economic Development Council, Urban Corridor and Dormitory Authority of the State of New York.

Performance Park will be owned and managed by The Near Westside initiative. The space will include an athletic surface and athletic equipment, a performance stage with built-in viewing areas, solar power, Onondaga County ‘Save the Rain’ storm water retention systems, trees and landscaping, lighting, a gated entrance and security. The new parking space can also be used for farmers markets, food trucks as well as promoting local entrepreneurship.

Construction is expected to be complete in early fall. Stay tuned for an update in our December 2019 newsletter!
