Danville Parks and Recreation is hosting the second in its series of free community events called Heart the Park on Monday, February 21. The event is a part of ongoing efforts to engage residents in the park planning process. The event features a scavenger hunt for hearts in the park, prizes, tennis demonstrations, participatory art display, music, s’mores, and a fire pit. The event will showcase illustrated examples of park additions or improvements that work toward goals that some community members have already identified for the parks. Participants are also encouraged to give feedback and sign up to be a part of future planning activities.
City partners and local organizations are co-hosting the event and showcasing how they are available with support and resources for healthy living and community building. The Health Collaborative, Opportunity Neighborhoods, Department of Community Development, Danville Police Department, Southside Area Tennis Association, and Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History will all be present with activities, information, and giveaways.
“The first 'Heart the Park' event went great,” said Stephanie Lovely, Facilities and Services Planner. “So many park-area residents showed up to see potential designs of the park space, hang out, and have fun. We’re so excited to be at Coates Park and speak with those residents, too.”
This event will take place on Monday, February 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Coates Park, located at 1725 Westover Drive. The last event will take place at Pumpkin Creek Park, located at 315 Taylor Drive, but the date and time have not been determined.
