We hope you can attend the consultation to give your input towards how you would like that park to look, feel and function. We will also take any e-mail feedback and pass it along to the planners. This will be the first of two consultations – the second one, Parks Planners will have prepared two conceptual designs for you to further provide input towards. We will make sure to provide all updates here as well.
