A new, one-of-a-kind Waterfront park opened in May, 2012. Pierce's Park, located on the Waterfront's Pier 5, features native plantings, natural play areas for children, and original sculptures designed for exploration and fun.
Located between the Visitor Center and Science Center, the West Shore Park features a large 'great lawn' that provides fun, family friendly opportunities at the Harbor. The addition of the Walter Sondheim Fountain adds another dimension of delight for children to run and play in an interactive fountain built for active use. The Walter Sondheim Fountain operates daily from 10am to 10pm in the warmer months (except when mainterance is being performed). Waterfront Partnership manages the Park and provides a host of events, as well as crafts and play activities geared for children and families from the local area on summer weekends.
Stay Afloat on Waterfront Partnership!
