How much of the park does MICA cover?

A:

Mercerdale Park covers an area of 30.9 acres including the abandoned recycling center and Bicentennial park plaza which together currently comprise approximately 1.2% of the park. MICA’s entire footprint, including plaza space, a possible mandatory fire access path and an outdoor performance area will comprise approximately 2.7% of the park. Over 97% of Mercerdale Park will be unchanged by MICA.

The images below show the total area of the park along with trails, walking and bike paths, Bicentennial Park, the pergola, skateboard park and children’s play area. The inset image shows the area containing the great lawn and recycling center before and after the MICA building is in place.
