Water Light Public Plaza Now Open at Lyric in Downtown Walnut Creek

Lyric, Walnut Creek

Over four years ago we first learned of a little public parklet within a new apartment and retail complex (now known as Lyric) coming to downtown Walnut Creek and the Water Light Public Plaza is now open to the public. As you can see in the photo below there is a new cool-looking work of art along the back wall.

    Is the water on yet? I was there this weekend and noticed the pipes below the mural not yet connected.

    • Not yet but it looked cool when I checked during the evening when it was dark out.

    Almost as ugly as the monstrosity of a sculpture that they approved for Ygnacio at 680.

    Wait…what exactly is the point of this “parklet”? Will they have shaded tables/sitting areas?

    How “public” will this be, considering there’s a metal gate that can close off access?

    To me, it just looks like a hoitey-toitey basketball court…without the hoops.

    • There are chairs and tables now. I specifically asked them about the metal gate and open to the public and an employee said it definitely is open to the public. We’ll see what happens later on.
