Greg Cuoio Park & Greenways Master Plan
In April 2021, the City launched the Greg Cuoio Park & Greenways Master Plan development process. The project area, located between the Crossroads and Hawk’s Prairie neighborhoods just north of I-5, encompasses 537 acres of public open space, including Greg Cuoio Park, Pleasant Glade Park, and Palm Creek Headwaters.
These parks and surrounding greenways’ pristine wilderness, wetlands, and creeks throughout the site, represent a truly unique asset to the City and our community. The site’s natural amenities will enhance Lacey’s overall park system with a focus on passive recreation and minimizing our footprint on the land.

Important goals for Greg Cuoio Park include:
- Open-space Preservation
- Water-rights Mitigation
- Natural Storm Water Filtration
- Water-quality Protection in the Woodland Creek Watershed
- Wildlife Habitat Corridor Protection
- Potential Fisheries Enhancement
Accomplishing these goals, while creating a place for visitors and residents to experience and learn about this incredibly unique area, is one of the biggest challenges of the master planning process.
