Overview of a one-mile stretch of parkland spanning 80 acres.

Vineyard residents who live on the “old” side of town are about to see even more changes in their part of town.

A new Central Corridor masterplan was presented to the city on Monday for public input and further design. The corridor has in the past been reserved for future parkland that spans 80 acres from the top of Grove Park, approximately 400 north and south of Main Street, “Fish Hook”, 70 S. Holdaway Road.

That area of ​​parkland extends for about a mile through the center of the south part of the city and connects to the development of the new city.

Residents can attend three public meetings that feature one of the park’s three sections through October.

  • There will be a discussion on Grove Park on October 8 from 10 am to 12 noon.
  • There will be a discussion on Gammon Park on October 11 from 5 to 7 pm.
  • Complete the Central Corridor on October 20 at the Vineyard City Council Chambers from 5 to 8 p.m.

This is part of the first phase of the project. With PEC is Lars Anderson, the architect in charge of the development.

South Grove section of the Central Corridor master plan for park land.

Following the public input period, which runs until October 21, consultants and staff will seek feedback from Vineyard residents and revise the plan.

After the changes are added, the plan will go before Vineyard’s planning commission and city council, potentially in early 2023, according to city communications manager Katherine Newman.

The plan will be implemented as an addendum to the general plan of the vineyard.

“The scheme can be implemented in phases depending on the funding and grant amount. Some parts may be immediate in the next 1-3 years after approval. Others like the next 5-10 years will take longer,” Newman said. “We will share a more detailed timeline with residents as the plans are concrete.”

At each event, Vineyard City Council members and City staff will be available to answer questions about the plan. Presentations and surveys can be found at

A portion of South Grove Park land.

The plan is divided into four sections, starting with Vineyard Grove Park. Site highlights include an art walk, pickleball courts, a dog park, walking loops, a slide park, a community garden, multi-purpose area, food truck parking area, and shade pavilions.

The next section is south of the grove, also known as the wetland. Highlights include a walking loop and covered pavilions and a pump track/bike park at the southern end of the area.

Gammon Park has two designs for residents to consider. The first design includes an artificial turf field and multi-purpose area, including batting cages, a tennis court, a community center, sensory gardens, an all-capacity park, playgrounds, a parkour playground, spray park, bouldering space and yard games. Includes a space for also available.

Other options for the area include a large open field and additional parking.

There are also two renderings in the last area to the south of Gaiman. The first concept includes a pond, additional pickleball courts, a slackline space, a pump track and skate park, and a playground.

The second option replaces the pond with a disc golf field.

“Through participation in the public input process, Vineyards provides residents with the opportunity to comment on enhanced amenities and enhanced open spaces throughout the city. Valuable input from residents will help shape the future of these regions,” said Newman .

Newman noted that it has received more than 250 resident responses as of Tuesday evening, with the survey going live on Monday.

It will connect the old part of downtown to the new 800-acre development of the city’s new Vineyard Station/Downtown Center.

The Vineyard will develop three miles of waterfront property, including boardwalks and sandy beaches. That project is also prescribed in the master plan.
