Public invited to opening of Pearl Street Park

Opens next week Thursday

SIOUX CITY, Iowa - The Sioux City Parks and Recreation Department would like to invite the public to the grand opening and dedication ceremony for the new Pearl Street Park at 620 Pearl Street on Thursday, October 19 beginning at 1:30 p.m. The new community park includes play surfaces, musical play features, shade structures, stone boulders, bicycle racks, paved walking paths, landscaping, and pedestrian lighting. The park will also house two permanent art sculptures.

After a vision that began several years ago to open a downtown park, the Parks and Recreation Department utilized a design created by ISU graduate students transforming a former parking lot into much needed downtown recreational green space. The new park will complement and support the existing LaunchPad Children’s Museum and future events that may include Food Truck Friday’s, outdoor concerts, and family-friendly activities. The park is expected to enhance the area and provide a great gathering place for everyone.

The Pearl Street Park project was completed as the result of a generous donation by Mrs. Regina Roth that enabled the City to create and develop something transformational and unique within the downtown area. “The City is pleased to be able to free-up space and add much needed programable green space in this area that will be a great benefit to our  community and the environment,” said Matt Salvatore, Parks and Recreation Director.

“Additionally, we are very appreciative of Mrs. Roth and her support. During the grand opening, we will be unveiling a memorial plaque to commemorate her contribution to the park.”

The park grand opening is a community event; and all are invited to attend.
