Thank you!

Thank you to the volunteers, the City of Eureka, and our community for making Play & Plan Day a success! We appreciate everyone who took time out of their day to lead tours, host the children’s activities, play music, facilitate planning sessions, clean up the park, and perform demonstrations. It was a truly amazing to see the level of commitment to our community that was expressed through these efforts. We would also like to thank our community members who came down to the Cooper Gulch Park to explore the myriad of activities that took place on Play & Plan Day and be part of creating a world of possibilities in the Park.
We learned so much about the Park through Play & Plan Day. It turns out, Cooper Gulch Park has amazing acoustics!  It was really interesting to see how popular the Myrtle Grove Cemetery tour was, and how very little is currently known about the birding opportunities in Cooper Gulch. We also dove a little deeper to explore strategies to address the priorities identified in the community survey results. We heard that one of the easiest things to do make Cooper Gulch Park more inviting is to have maps of the Park and its trails readily available. The planning charrette turn-up some really fun ideas on facilities that would make the park a more interesting place, such as co-locating play spaces for children near some of the disc golf tees. Interested in learning more and providing your input? Come to Arts Alive on June 3rd 6-9, location to be announced.
