Leddy Park Public Workshop

On April 9th, we hosted an open house style public workshop. We set up several stations geared towards sharing information,  getting feedback on proposed ideas and hearing what might be on people’s “wish list” for the park.

The stations included dot exercises, write in boards and maps. We also had a comment box for any ideas or suggestions that didn’t fit into the format. City staff and volunteers were present at all the stations to offer more details and have one-to-one conversations with the attendees.

 

Overall we thought it was a big success with over 75 people in attendance! It was a great opportunity for friends and neighbors to join the conversation about the park. We also provided some great snacks!

 

Here’s the results of the interactive posters:

We still want to hear from you!

If you couldn’t join us for the event, we still want to hear from you. So we’ve created an online survey that mirrors the work stations. Please take a moment to share your thoughts.

We also had some posters to inform participants of upcoming plans at Leddy Park.

Those include:

What’s next?

Once we close the survey, we’ll compile all the responses into one format and share them.

We also plan to hold more public workshops in the future, including the upcoming one for Arms Forest on May 15th!
