Sandy community invited to dicsuss future of parks
The city of Sandy is getting outside, with a new plan focusing on the community's parks and trails and how to maintain and grow them into the future.
City staff and members of the Sandy Parks Advisory Board invite all Sandy residents to join the discussion on the future of the city's parks and trails from 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27, at the Sandy Community/Senior Center, 38348 Pioneer Blvd.
Ideas and information gleaned from the workshop will be considered while the city completes its Parks and Trails Master Plan. The city's last parks plan was finalized in 1997, and the city is looking for public input on what residents want to see in the future.
"Would you like Tickle Creek Trail extended? Similar trails on the north side of Sandy?" a statement from the advisory board poses. "Do you want another splash pad? Another dog park? Playgrounds for older kids? Sports fields?"
Children are welcome to attend. There will also be a follow-up survey online. For more information on Sandy parks or the master plan process, visit the city's parks webpage.
