We just got an email from Kirsty MacDonald, Parks and Open Space Planner for City of Nanaimo. You may have met her at the meeting we had one rainy evening last year to bounce some ideas around about Pawson Park improvements.
She provided the plans above and is posting a sign in the park as well. She thinks (and I agree) this is really good news and will help to facilitate the goal of an intergenerational park. Day camp leaders will host art projects with neighbourhood youth, and display their work in the park. We would like to see similar events for the entire neighbourhood.
Phase 1 (or most of it) should be done by July. You will see new trails, universal access, a few garden beds, removal of the wading pool, and a new playground. This will leave lots of room for park improvements in future years that are built and designed by the neighbourhood. The basic work will be done by July to facilitate summer park use.
Thank you Kirsty!
