The new parking lot will be located at the current site of the Memorial Park Community Garden (and future site of the relocated Dog Park) located on SW Schroeder Way.  The current parking area is a compacted gravel site used solely for the Community Garden.  Proposed improvements include parking lot pavement and stormwater management facilities, utilities, landscaping, a trail connection across the parking lot, access roadway, and restroom.
