The connections are yours to discover at Ascent Village. Amenity Nodes stationed along the Cultural Trail within the Middle Fork Street Open Space provide seating, gathering space, and other social opportunities such as bocce ball and bag-toss games. Grill out or enjoy a picnic while you await your turn to play. Stop and chat with some neighbors while on your morning walk or schedule a time to meet with your social group in this amazingly flexible space.
