In 2020-21, Pierce County Parks will work with the community surrounding Half Dollar Park and future park users to develop a master plan for the property. The master planning process will consider different potential park amenities and gather public feedback to determine which improvements will best serve the community.
Construction of Half Dollar Park is anticipated to take place in 2022-23, following the same timeline as construction of Pipeline Trail, which will cross through the park. Construction will include a trailhead for Pipeline Trail and other park amenities identified through the master planning process.
Pierce County Parks anticipates hiring a consultant to assist with public outreach and site feasibility studies in Spring 2020. Site feasibility work will take place in Summer 2020, and public outreach will begin in Fall 2020. The Master Plan will be completed and published in the first half of 2021, and design and engineering of Phase 1 improvements will take place through the remainder of 2021 to prepare for construction to start in 2022.
