Grand Junction is more than an idea. It's more than a vision. It's more than a transformative movement making waves in Westfield. This project is a catalyst for connections, and it has the power to create a downtown center like this area has never seen before. A place people want to visit. A place residents feel proud to claim as their own.
It's all about connecting: with family and friends; with nature; with great places to dine; with distinctive places to shop; with popular regional trails, roadways and waterways; with history; and with community. Westfield's Grand Junction will be a place where old meets new and people connect with each other. Truly, our downtown will be the heartbeat of our city, pumping new energy in every direction. New development is planned for retail, restaurants, office space and residences. These structures, combined with existing buildings rich in history, will establish a well-balanced community that embraces both its roots and new growth as well as its residents and visitors.
The Grand Junction Park and Plaza will be the focal point and the new heart of our downtown, including: an amphitheater and Great Lawn gathering place for festivals, concerts and special events; an interactive water play area; an arts garden; a full size ice skating rink in the winter months; a hardscape festival boulevard; and a play in nature area. The park and plaza will provide programmable space throughout all seasons. Grand Junction will also be the connecting point of the Anna Kendal and Midland Trace Trails, allowing for access to Westfield's complete trail system and other points of interest throughout the community. Pedestrian-friendly streets will invite visitors and residents alike to explore both the park and plaza and area restaurants and shops. Grand Junction will truly become the heart and soul of Westfield.
