We're OPEN during Gateway Renovations

altThe Center is open to visitors during Gateway Project renovations (expected completion by end December 2016). Due to the work being done near the Center, the north parking lot will be closed.

Please park at the south end of the park in the lot off Evergreen Street and use the main park pathway to access the Center.  Thank you for your patience as we make exciting changes to serve you better!!   >> More info on Gateway Phase II.

Donor Brick Campaign -- Leave Your Mark at the Center!
