JAMESTOWN – The next meeting of the Friends of Lillian Dickson Park community group will be held tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Park at the corner of Falconer and Bowen Streets. The group will be planning its first ever block party, which will be held at the Park on Saturday, July 21. The group will also discuss fundraising, playground designs, and the establishment of a neighborhood watch group.
The group needs community input to create a playground design everyone will enjoy. During the group’s last meeting, Ben Frasier, a project manager for Parkitects, presented a preliminary design of a playground structure his firm created last year of a playground structure. Parkitects also provided the playground equipment for Roseland and Allen Park and is providing the equipment for the playground at Fletcher Elementary School.
The group hopes to have the design ready in time to be displayed at the neighborhood block party it’s planning for Saturday, July 21 at the park. However, they would like more input from the parents whose children will be playing on the equipment, so anyone interested is encouraged to attend tonight’s meeting.
The meeting is free and open to the public.
