Saanich hosts public workshop for Gyro Park

Residents interested in having a hand in reshaping Gyro Park are invited to a planning workshop June 19.

Residents interested in having a hand in reshaping Gyro Park are invited to a planning workshop June 19.

Saanich has spent the last three years holding open houses and stakeholder meetings determining the type of changes that need to be addressed to make Gyro Park thrive.

From park accessibility and playground upgrades to a better parking lot and storm water management, there is no shortage of improvements that can be done.

Saanich has $337,500 in matching grant money from the provincial government to improve park accessibility. Parks staff say some $675,000 worth of accessibility upgrades will be done, beginning this summer and likely leading into spring 2014.

The workshop later this month will include multiple design concepts that Saanich staff have prepared. Residents will be invited to provide their feedback on all the options.

Staff will be in attendance at the meeting to answer questions, listen to feedback and provide information.

Individuals who are unable to attend the meeting can view all the conceptual park plans online, and provide feedback via a survey from June 19 to July 25.

The meeting takes place at Frank Hobbs elementary (3875 Haro Rd.) on Wednesday, June 19, 4 to 8 p.m.

The information will also be on display at Gordon Head Recreation Centre  (4100 Lambrick Way) from July 2 to July 16.
