[ARCHIVED] Community invited to Lock 9 Groundbreaking Ceremony

Lock 9 Groundbreaking Save the Date

The City of Piqua invites community members to celebrate the commencement of the construction of Lock 9 Park during a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, June 14, 2023. Brief remarks from public officials and special guests will begin at 4:00 PM at the park site at 125 E. Water St., Piqua, Ohio.

The Lock 9 Park phase II improvements will include constructing the bike trail connection to Main Street, terracing the levee overlooking the Great Miami Riverway, and creating a performance pavilion and community lawn.  A final construction phase is anticipated to be presented to the City Commission for approval later in 2023.  The final phase will include restoring the lock walls, installing a water feature, planting tree groves, and other landscape improvements. 

Substantial completion of the park is anticipated for the Spring of 2024. When complete, Lock 9 Park will be a hub for outdoor recreation, leisure, and community gatherings.
