New park slated for Smoky Hollow in Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN — Harrison Field was the center stage of the Smoky Hollow neighborhood for decades, so it is perhaps only appropriate the development of Harrison Commons on that same site will be the first project in Smoky Hollow’s rebirth.

Ground was broken on the project today on North Walnut Street just across from the Youngstown State University parking deck.

The park will feature a brick-paved plaza, an arbor for events such as plays and concerts, and a large historic map of Smoky Hollow. A $396,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources will pay for the project, which will be completed in October.
