FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The City of Fort St. John says that they would like feedback from the public when it comes to the redesigning of Centennial Park.
“This community engagement is a great opportunity for residents and park users to collaborate with City staff on the redesign of Centennial Park,” said Mayor Ackerman. “This park is a hub of activity and events and it needs to meet the needs of our growing community.”
The city says that a master plan will be developed based on the feedback that they receive.
The park currently includes: a grassed open space, a mixture of trees and shrubs, a playground, skate park, gathering spaces, a spray park, a formal garden, commemorative monuments, a metal bear sculpture, trails, sidewalks, access roads, parking and vacant land.
It is also host to many numerous events throughout the year including Canada Day celebrations, Aboriginal Day, High on Ice Winter Festival, Santa Clause Parade as well as Movie in The Park and the Farmers Market.
There will be upcoming opportunities for citizens to share ideas, review materials, speak one on one with landscape architects designing the park and speak with City of Fort St. John representatives on Wednesday, July 26 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the West Meeting room on the 1st floor of the Pomeroy Sport Centre.
