Public Invited to “Plan2Play” with Greensboro Parks and Recreation

GREENSBORO, NC (January 29, 2018) – Greensboro Parks and Recreation has begun the public phase of Plan2Play, the master plan that will help the department map out its goals for community recreation for the next 20 years. Residents can participate through information-gathering surveys and public meetings beginning February 22.

The consulting group Agency Landscape + Planning, which is preparing the plan, has mailed surveys to a random sampling of 2,500 residents. Other online surveys and in-person engagement opportunities will be open to all residents in late February.

“These surveys are designed to provide us details on how people use our facilities, what types of recreation needs they have, and how we can improve what we do and offer,” said Shawna Tillery, Parks and Recreation planning manager. “We encourage residents to reach out and tell us what they want.”

Residents are asked to save the date for the Plan2Play Community Conversation, 5-8 pm, February 22, at the Van Dyke Performance Space at the Greensboro Cultural Center, 200 N. Davie St. This is a drop-in session with games and opportunities to talk directly to the consultants. Residents may attend at any time. There will be a brief explanatory presentation at the top of each hour. Free childcare will be provided for ages 4-12. Free parking is available at the Church Street parking deck after 5 pm.
