Springvale Park Design Workshop, Sunday, August 22, 4:00 PM at the Trolley Barn

The next step in the Visioning process for Springvale Park being facilitated by Park Pride is a design workshop to be held on Sunday, August 22, at 4:00 p.m. at the Trolley Barn. ANYONE AND EVERYONE in the neighborhood is welcome and encouraged to attend. Those in attendance will be divided into groups and will be allowed to design the “park of their dreams!” The results of the neighborhood questionnaire will be available, as will copies of all the other plans that have been made for the park over the years.

Now is the time for everyone with an opinion on Springvale Park to step forward and get involved. The neighborhood has invested quite a large sum of money in the Visioning process and this workshop is a critical opportunity for the residents of Inman Park, those who live near the park as well as those who live far away, to affect the design that, hopefully, will ultimately get implemented there.

After this workshop, the professionals at Park Pride will take OUR designs and put them together into two or three different designs which will be presented at the next public meeting in the process, September 21. Those plans will be consolidated into a single plan to be unveiled on October 24. By December 7 it is hoped that a final plan, along with a list of projects and priorities, will be finished. However, NOW is the time to get involved with that process!

That house burned early on and was replaced by a putt-putt golf course, followed by the structure currently housing Heartwork Counseling Center and Mattus Plumbing, et.al.
