Help envision the future of Douglas Fluhrer Park
June 3, 2013 -
The City is inviting the public to a Visioning Workshop to generate ideas on how to revitalize Douglas R. Fluhrer Park which runs along Kingston's Inner Harbour.
The workshop is set for 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12 in Memorial Hall at City Hall, 216 Ontario St. It will be led by Thinc Design (Tocher Heyblom Design Inc.), which has been hired by the City to help gather, prioritize and develop ideas from the public, park users and residents, businesses and property owners in the neighbourhoods near the park.
"This is a large waterfront park that is a five minute walk from the heart of downtown. It already offers impressive views of the inner harbour, connections to the local neighbourhood and businesses and has potential," says Neal Unsworth, Manager, Parks Development.
Additional feedback will be sought from the various stakeholder groups over the course of the summer. Visioning Workshop participants will be asked to share their opinions and recommendations to improve the park toward the development of a high level concept for a revitalized Fluhrer Park. That concept will be presented at a second public meeting this fall.
