Construction has begun at Hamm Park and should continue into October 2018. Please use caution in the area while construction proceeds.
A small triangular park at 743 Seventh Street East, Hamm Park offers a small seating area set back from the busy street. The larger Swede Hollow Park and Bruce Vento Regional Bike Trail are a block away. The park was given to the city in the early twentieth century by William Hamm, a park commissioner, who donated the land in memory of his father and namesake of the nearby brewery, Theodore Hamm.
The scope of work for the project includes a new seating / gathering area, additional paths, signage, an additional trash receptacle, and pollinator-friendly planted areas. If you wish to provide feedback on Hamm Park, please contact the staff listed at right.
Construction is anticipated to begin in September and end in mid-October 2018. Please check this page for updates.
