The city of Santa Clarita will host two additional public meetings for residents to have the opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed plan to build an inclusive play area at Canyon Country Park.
The first meeting will take place on Thursday, May 30 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. The second meeting is scheduled for that evening from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Both meetings will be held in the Community Room at Canyon Country Park, located at 17615 Soledad Canyon Road.
The same content will be covered at both meetings, and activities will be provided for children.
At the meetings, the updated concept design, incorporating comments and feedback gathered from the city’s first public meeting on April 16, will be shared with the public.
Attendees at the upcoming meetings will be able to speak with city staff members and consultants about the project.
These meetings are a great opportunity for residents to ask questions and offer any input they may have about the inclusive play area, which will be the first of its kind built by the city.
The play area is set to include inclusive play structures, accessible connections to existing facilities, a shade structure and new seating areas for children and adults.
Construction is scheduled to begin in July 2019 and is anticipated to be completed by the end of the year.
Inclusive playgrounds provide meaningful play experiences. This project will construct an enjoyable outdoor play environment that provides physical and social inclusion for people of all ages and abilities.
