Park concepts debut

The City of Penticton has pulled back the curtain on three concepts for the Robinson Property Park master plan.

The park — which is home to the Seniors' Drop-In Centre, pickleball courts, horseshoe pits and bocce-ball pitch — has been growing busier and more cramped in recent years and the city is seeking the public’s input on a way forward.

“We created three versions for the community to consider. One that maximizes the amenities, one that maximizes the green space and one that balances the two,” said public works Manager Len Robson. “We are asking citizens to look at the concepts, tell us which features they like and don’t like so that we can prepare a recommended version.”

The concepts were developed with help from the park’s user groups and the community at large. The need for a long-term vision for the park was recommended as a part of last year’s city-wide parks and rec master plan.

“The site is fairly well established as a recreation hub and this is something that participants have told us they want to see continue,” said Robson. “There is also a desire to enhance the natural features of the park and include things like community gardens and gathering spaces that are more in line with the design guidelines in the parks and recreation master plan. We are looking forward to hearing what the community thinks is the right mix for this special property.”

Residents can look at the concepts now on shapeyourcitypenticton.ca and attend one of the open houses coming up at the Penticton Seniors’ Drop-in Centre on March 7, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and March 9, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The city will be collecting feedback on the concepts until March 24.
