The City of Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department would like your ideas as they begin a master planning process to enhance San Gabriel Park. A public meeting to gather ideas from the community will be at 7 p.m. on March 18 at the Community Center, 445 E. Morrow Street in San Gabriel Park.
The San Gabriel Park Master Plan aims to protect natural resources and improve gathering spaces at the park. Meeting attendees will have the chance to identify current park features and uses that should be retained, as well as new features that could be added. Participants also will have the opportunity to comment on ideas for play features, picnic structures, plazas, natural areas, or other possible features at San Gabriel Park. Planning and design firm RVi is assisting the Parks and Recreation Department on the San Gabriel Park Master Plan.
Design work should begin this fall on the first phases of redevelopment of the park. Parks bond funding authorized by Georgetown voters in 2008 is available for the redevelopment project.
Public input for the master plan will be used to guide the Parks and Recreation Department in determining amenities to be included in future renovations.
