Recognizing that public gathering places are a key element of downtown revitalization, Casper Downtown Development Authority has been working on a downtown plaza slated to open by summer 2017. The plaza, will offer free and low-cost events throughout the year and will feature a splash pad, ice skating rink and band shelter.

This project is made possible by private contributions of over $1.7 million, $3 million allocated from the City of Casper’s 2014 excess One Cent funds, and $500,000 from the state. The total cost of the project is expected to be around $8.5 million. “The idea of an events driven public plaza would not be possible without the support and encouragement from our community. The partnerships that have been formed during this project make us proud to live, work and play in Casper,” says Lindsey Pariscoff, Project Coordinator at Casper DDA.
