  • Heritage Park has expanded to cover a continuous city block with Second Street to the north, Third Street to the south, and Main and Hastings streets to the east and west.
  • The original library building would be moved closer to the corner of Main and Third streets.
  • The original library building would feature an elevated wooden deck in the back with tables for seating.
  • The city’s original water tower would be restored to its original height.
  • A paving stone walk would be installed along Hasting Street to resemble train tracks heading into the horizon.
  • The proposed plan would replace the wooden gazebo, which has surpassed its lifespan, with a larger, steel gazebo, and set it back toward the center of the park directly behind a proposed fountain feature and entry plaza.
  • The caboose and train depot would be relocated to sit parallel with Hastings Street.
  • The caboose would rest on its current train tracks, surrounded by a low ornamental fence and lighting for additional protection.
  • The current wooden gazebo would be replaced with a larger, steel gazebo, and it would be set back toward the center of the park directly behind a proposed fountain feature and entry plaza.
  • Caster Cabin currently backs up to Second and Main streets. While the cabin’s location is not envisioned to change, the site around it would be enhanced to mimic a windmill’s radial fan blades. The area would be renamed ‘Pioneer Plaza.'
  • The area around Caster Cabin would be renamed ‘Pioneer Plaza,’ and would include native grasses around the site and low vertical monuments that would pay homage to influential families from Irving’s early communities.
  • Four of the structures on the property would be repositioned to a different location within the park — with the exception of Caster Cabin — and new structures and amenities would be built or added onto existing structures.
  • The view of the southern end of the park shows the depot, caboose and original library in new locations.
