Royer parking lot reconstruction

Updated: 7/15/19

Work to pave the Royer Park parking lot is scheduled Monday, July 15 - Monday, July 29. The lot will be temporarily closed to the public during construction. Please use the free parking lot at the corner of Oak and Lincoln Street, the Oak Street Parking Garage, or Vernon Street Parking Garage. 

The City and contractor have worked closely to minimize the duration of the closure. Thank you for your patience as we improve the condition and accessibility of the parking lot. 

Please note, the construction schedule is subject to change due to weather, equipment, materials, or other unexpected conditions.

  • Continuation of the trail into Royer Park, resulting in a continuous 6-mile long off-street trail from Sierra College Boulevard to Darling Way
  • Refurbishment and rotation of the Rube Nelson “Ice House” Bridge 
  • Construction of the Taylor Street pedestrian bridge, connecting Royer Park to the Downtown Library
  • A new downtown pedestrian bridge, providing a direct connection between Royer Park and the Vernon Street Town Square. This bridge will have a high level of architectural detail and be wide enough to accommodate vendors and activities during special events. 
  • Addition of 36 trees
