Palm Springs will hold a grand opening next week for its new Downtown Park located at the intersection of Museum Way and Belardo Road, adjacent to the "Forever Marilyn" sculpture.
The new park is 1.5 acres and features palm trees, benches, a water feature, a downtown substation for the Palm Springs Police Department and an event stage with seating.
"The city of Palm Springs is absolutely thrilled to invite our residents to join us in celebrating the completion of our new downtown park," Mayor Christy Holstege said.
"The City Council has long envisioned the park as a wonderful venue and central hub for arts, culture, relaxation and enjoyment for residents and visitors alike. We can't wait for our Palm Springs community to begin using and loving this fantastic new amenity in the heart of downtown."
