Cuddy Family Midtown Park: 201 East 40th Avenue

Friends of Fish Creek will work with local artist and videographer Max Romey to create an outreach and education interpretive panel that tells the story of Fish Creek. Voters approved a feasibility study in 2022 to research options for restoring this once vibrant watershed.

The artistic display will be installed at Cuddy Park, which is home to ponds created by the creek. It will depict a free-flowing Fish Creek in the main map, with “scene bubbles” showing people recreating on a trail, families picnicking and coho salmon returning as envisioned by a coalition of advocates working to “daylight” this watershed that was channeled underground in the 1950s to allow midtown development.

This project requires a 1:1 match of grant award through donations, volunteer time, non federal grants, or donated materials or services. To learn more about how to support this project, contact Karen Button.
