FREMONT – A portion of concrete landscape located in Historic Downtown Fremont has been transformed into a scenic Greenspace area.
The parking lot behind the May Brother’s Building in downtown Fremont is the location of MainStreet Fremont’s Temporary Greenspace project. The previously vacant lot now contains grassy areas and a variety of trees, shrubs, rocks, and flowers. Executive Director of MainStreet Fremont, Shannon Mullen, says if the response from the public is positive, the Greenspace may be around longer.
“It’s a temporary greenspace at this point. It’s slated only to be open until September 21st,” said Mullen. “We have an intention with the information and feedback that we’re getting to go ahead and go back to the City Council and ask for it to remain open until the end of October.”
The idea for the project has been in the works for around two years. Mullen adds the organization is excited to finally have the Greenspace project open to the public.
“It’s so exciting. We’re so happy that it’s finally open,” said Mullen. “And we’re so thankful to the City of Fremont, Glen and Nancy Ellis, as well as Siffring Landscaping and all the donors that have made this happen.”
The Greenspace is located in the parking lot on the northeast corner of 5th and Park Avenue.
