City seeks advice from some ‘real’ playground experts

Victoria parks staff are looking to the experts to help plan upgrades to playground equipment at two city parks. Not playground engineers – children.

Kids know what’s fun and what’s boring on the playground, and next week they’re invited with their parents to a pair of public open houses to tell city staff all about it.

Parks staff will use this expert advice to upgrade equipment at Fern Street Park (in the Jubilee neighbourhood) and Wark Street Park (near the Blanshard Community Centre).

Open house dates are as follows:

• Fern Street Park – Tuesday, Nov. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Sundance elementary,1625 Bank St.

• Wark Street Park – Wednesday, Nov. 7 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Blanshard Community Centre, 901 Kings Rd.

Information panels and the survey will be available on the City of Victoria website and at the parks office in Beacon Hill Park from Nov. 8 to Nov. 30. To arrange an appointment, call 250-361-0600.
