JAMESTOWN – Work to completely rebuild a popular Jamestown Park was approved by local leaders this week.







The Jamestown Planning Commission approved the plan to construct a new green space at Potters Terrace located along Third Street and Potters Alleyway in Downtown Jamestown.

The park closed in 2019 after an engineer deemed the deck the park was built on unsafe. The structure was torn down last year and has since been filled in with gravel.







Those with Leaf+Stone Landscape Architecture plan to build out a green space at the site featuring several trees, planters, tables and benches.

“The space was designed with universal access in mind, so we’ve accommodated the grade change through the use of some steps as well as a ramp system so the site will be accessible for all users and all mobility,” explained Architect Joe Rollman.













Availability of materials used to build the park could impact the project’s timeline, but construction is expected to start in the spring.
