Want to get involved in the planning for a new park at 19th and Madison? There is a meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Hearing, Speech and Deafness Center next door to the future park site.
The park’s boosters received a $15,300 grant from the Department of Neighborhoods for a public meeting and design process to create a community-supported plan for the park. The goal is to create a park “for all ages and abilities” that is safe, relaxing and fun.
There will be meetings as the design develops over the next year, at which point fund raising will kick into high gear to make the park a reality.
You can get involved by showing up to meetings and by following the park on Facebook.
We need more off leash dog parks. This one should be dog centrict and allow others to participate if they are willing to respect dog rights.
