Stockmen's Park Groundbreaking

On Saturday, May 19th over 100 people attended the ground breaking of Stockmen's Park. Stockmen's Park will be located south of Blacksmith Square on Livermore Avenue. The 1.5-acre, horseshoe-shaped park will honor Livermore's veterans and ranching heritage. It will also serve as the focal point of over 3.5 acres of public open space and green space running from Livermore Avenue to South L Street.   

Stockmen's Park ground breaking

Implementation of the Downtown Plan is underway!

Because parking was the number one concern of the community, a new parking structure on South L Street is scheduled to break ground in spring of 2019. In order to maintain the current amount of parking during construction of the parking structure, the City has demolished two vacant buildings behind Blacksmith Square and is improving the surface lot. 

Construction of the new east-west road connecting L Street to Livermore Avenue will start later this year. The City Council has approved the design of the L Street parking garage and the boutique hotel by Presidio Companies.

The City selected RRM Design Group as the Stockmen’s Park landscape architect. The City has also selected developers for the new commercial buildings, cultural facilities, workforce housing, and artists for the art in Stockmen’s Park. Information kiosks near the project site are updated periodically as progress continues.
