Central Square Art Park

The Central Square Art Park was designed by members of the Auburn Arts Commission, and built with the help of many community organizations, businesses and volunteers. Located across from Downtown Auburn's Central Square, and next to the Placer County Welcome Center, the Art Park provides a beautiful place to hang with friends featuring a sparkling mosaic river, a stage for musical performances and public restrooms.

Thank you to our partners, sponsors and volunteers!
