REIMAGINE BEDDINGTON is a multi-year project to plan the future of our parks and open spaces. This is our chance to really make things interesting around here! Community garden? Outdoor exercise circuits? Gathering spaces? More benches along the pathways?
We seek YOUR ideas for our parks and open spaces! Your involvement will help us devise plans and make improvements happen!
ReImagine Beddington meetings are open to residents: We meet the second Tuesday of every month at the Beddington Theatre Arts Centre, upstairs Board Room, 7-9 pm.
Update — Feb 2018
We’ve been busy since August with three more engagements! Our Winter Carnival participants this January strongly agreed with the priorities our team has distilled through engagements, since the very beginning. See ReImagine Ideas List, below.
Our next engagements will try to identify what is needed, or wanted, and where!
Update – Aug 2018
Chantel and Janet welcomed visitors to our Reimagine Tent at the Neighbour Day Barbecue in June. From the Top 15 ideas which were identified during our April workshops, we asked people of all ages to select their Top 2. [All 15 ideas remain on the board, but this helps us gauge enthusiasm and potential priorities.] We asked them how they use our parks and open spaces now, what can be improved, and what new programs or ideas they would like to see. Thanks to everyone who dropped in!
Also in June, Ilona spent some time with Grade 1 students from St. Bede to ask, “What would you like to see in your neighbourhood, and why?” Their results are revealing!
