Unity Park

Roseville will soon be welcoming two new parks to its award-winning system including newly named Unity Park at 1716 Marion Street. But before they are officially opened there’s still a bit more to do.

City staff and park architects gathered feedback at a number of community input sessions and were interested in hearing the thoughts of Roseville residents. The input sessions gave residents a chance to help develop a shared vision for the use of the land as well as provide opinions on preferred amenities and design preferences. It's now on to the construction phase.
