Oh, You’re So Smart? Well, Make Sequoia Park Better Then!
Sequoia Park. You love it, I love it. Now what?
The City of Eureka has some ideas for ways it would like to improve the park. Before they move on those plans, though, they’d like to tap into whatever community brilliance might maybe be out there amongst the citizenry, specifically during a couple of community workshops. (Free refreshments!) The first of which is this Saturday, Oct. 21:
Details in the City of Eureka press release below:
Sequoia Park has been a Eureka treasure for over 100 years. Covered in tall-standing redwood trees, this park has something for everyone: trails, playgrounds, picnic areas, a duck pond, and the opportunity to connect with 67 acres of old growth forest in the middle of the city. With a landscape as exquisite as this one, it’s no wonder it holds such a special place in our community’s heart. That’s why we want to hear from you!
With your help, the City wants to:
This groundbreaking project will engage the ideas and support of our entire community. We will leverage our love affair with this piece of land, celebrate its spirit, maintain its remarkable history, and we will envision new ways to discover, learn, and play for generations to come.
- Make the park more inclusive (create a safe play environment for people of all ages and abilities)
- Diversify the park’s experiences
- Enhance the play area
- Expand recreational opportunities
- Upgrade the trail system
- Add more gathering space
- Preserve natural and cultural resources
- Promote sustainability
What do you say? Let’s reimagine the next 100 years here, together!
Join us this Saturday, October 21st, the first part of a series of two community workshops to gather residents’ thoughts, ideas, and visions. With this public input, we will create a collaborative design and plan for the future of our beloved park.
To stay updated and to add your voice and ideas to the conversation, follow us on Facebook.com/eurekasequoiapark. We hope to see you at the park this Saturday, Oct. 21 at 12:30 p.m.!
Free food and refreshments will be available!
