Youth Engagement  Student brainstorming sheet

We were at Monterey Middle School this week as part of our work on the Carnarvon Park Master Plan for the District of Oak Bay. We had a chance to meet with nearly 50 Grade 7 students to get their input on the park.
After a brief presentation, a group brainstorming exercise, and a “sharing out” of each group’s favourite ideas for the park, there was an opportunity for the students to vote on what they would love to see in the new park using sticky notes.
We’ve generated ton of great ideas that we can’t wait to incorporate into the master planning process as we move forward.

A big thank you to Mr. Friese and his class for welcoming us into their classroom and making the engagement session a success.

Visitors reviewed information on the planning process and environmental and technical assessments and walked the site with tour guide, Elizabeth FitzZaland of Green City Builders.

The new park will be located in Mouat Park and built with funding from The Salt Spring Lions Club, the Salt Spring Island Recreation Commission (PARC), and the Capital Regional District (CRD).

Responses to the Draft concept were generally positive and the next round of work is now underway. Construction of the bike park is projected to begin this summer.
