Come design your neighborhood park!

Come design your neighborhood park!

Posted: 10-13-2011

In an effort to increase the amount of green space in our community, LINC is partnering with the City of Grand Rapids, OCBA and Friends of Grand Rapids Parks to develop the area between Madison Ave, Adams and Gilbert Streets into a neighborhood park. We have held a series of stakeholder meetings with local leaders and residents to inform the planning process. Now we want neighbors to come and share their ideas and dreams to guide the development of the park space.

On Saturday November 19, 2011 there will be an open-house style design charrette for you to come grab a bite to eat, speak with the architects and share your input on the proposed plans for the park.

The charrette will be held at Madison Place | 1401 Madison Ave SE on Saturday, November 19. There will be an open studio from 9am-12pm and 1pm-3pm. 

After 3pm the architects will get to work designing the park according to the community’s input. At 6pm residents will be invited back to see their dreams take shape as the architects share the final plans and seek approval from the community.
