Everbody is worth everything.

- Maya Angelou

So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth.

We inhabit a universe that is characterized by diversity.

- Baha'U'Llah



- Desmond Tutu

People are unique, and yet we share so much. The parallel pathways concept celebrates our togetherness, while honoring our differences. Two pathways encircle the park, winding together in parallel experiences of places and play. One path remains easily accessible for those who need smooth surfaces to navigate the park safely, while the other meanders off and loops back to offer a variety of experiences for those seeking challenges as they explore. It doesn’t matter how you choose to access the space; the important thing is, we can all do it differently and together.

Where are we?

Pathways Park, by Hannah Viano

The designs are finalized, Pathways Park is fully funded, Bayshore Construction is contracted and we're ready to go! The park will be closing April 17, 2023 for the duration of construction.

Thank you to everyone for sharing your stories and dreams. Thank you for supporting, encouraging and believing in this project. And, thank you for your patience while the park is closed for renovations.

We can't wait to celebrate the opening with you!
