The City of Greensboro held a ribbon cutting ceremony on December 1, 2006, to celebrate the opening of the new Center City Park.
In 2003, PPS worked with the City and community members to create a vision for what this new park could be. PPS facilitated a Placemaking workshop where participants developed a range of both short-term opportunities and a long-term vision plan. The new park was envisioned as an opportunity to revitalize Downtown Greensboro, and to create a community gathering place that will be a destination for residents.

Greensboro blogger David Wharton wrote a great description of the new park, comparing it to PPS’s list of the ten qualities of a great park.
