Student Engagement Events

The developer worked with Evergreen to create a series of activities for students in three different grades at Blantyre Public School. The students provided their ideas and vision for the new park, including what features they would like included. Inclusive play features for all and enhancing the natural environment was identified as a priority. The students created drawings, models and videos to share their ideas for the final park design.
