Whether it’s bathrooms at Strousse Park or a skate park or bike park elsewhere, Georgetown officials are gathering feedback on amenities and designs for its 11 present and future parks.
On Oct. 30, the Georgetown Parks & Recreation Commission hosted an open house meeting at the Community Center, where dozens of people made suggestions and asked questions about current and future parks. The parks board is gearing up to create a formal parks master plan and has hired consultant DHM Design to help with that effort.
As a way of getting feedback from local youngsters, parks board members visited Georgetown Community School to talk to its third-graders, sixth-graders and student council members, board member Beth Luther explained.
Overall, she said, the feedback included having more playgrounds, a skate park and a mountain bike park, she said. Feedback from adults, she added, also included the desire for a technical skills mountain-biking park and a skate park. People want to have real bathrooms at City Park rather than portable ones.
