New vision sought for Robinson Property
The city is seeking help from the public to shape the future of the property around the Penticton Seniors’ Drop-In Centre.
The original six-acre Robinson Property was granted to the city in 1982 and dedicated as a park. In addition to the seniors’ centre, it now also plays host to horseshoe pits, pickleball courts and bocce fields.
Due to the demand from new user groups interested in setting up there, the new Parks and Recreation Master Plan recommended creating a sitespecific master plan for the property, a process approved by council in September.
“The city is undertaking a very inclusive process for the development of the plan,” Mayor Andrew Jakubeit said in a press release.
“Not only are we committed to working closely with the existing users of the site including the Penticton Seniors’ Drop-in Centre Society, we are also interested in hearing ideas from the community at large. If you have a vision or idea on how we can enhance this community park and asset, we hope you will participate in the process.”
A pair of workshops are planned for Oct. 24 and 29 to help with the exercise. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call JoAnne Kleb at 250-490-2586.
