City water facilities at Waterworks Park are in the midst of a multiyear upgrade project that has turned part of the central Vancouver gathering spot into a construction zone.
The scope of that work — part of a $35 million to $40 million overhaul — has left reader Sara Morse of Vancouver wondering what’s in store for the recreational facilities at the park southeast of Fort Vancouver Way and East Fourth Plain Boulevard.
Morse posed this question to The Columbian’s Clark Asks feature, a special reporting project guided by readers and their interests.
Her question — “I’m curious what the future holds for Waterworks Park? Will the amphitheater ever be utilized again?” — received 63 percent support in a recent voting round to become the next Clark Asks story to be pursued by The Columbian’s reporting staff.
The question outpolled these questions: “Why is the I-5 onramp in downtown Vancouver metered in the middle of the day?” from an anonymous reader and, “How did Vancouver come to have a Henrietta Lacks High School?” from Martha Hager of Vancouver.
