Community Park

BUILDING A COMMUNITY PARK

By James Etzkorn, Echo Lake Community Group Board Member

Several 2021 survey respondents shared interest in a community park where people could meet, walk, and play. Ideally, the park would include a small parking lot, playground, picnic benches, and a small field. It would be open to the entire community and a great place to host community events while providing a safe place for kids to play and interact.

Establishing a new park is no small feat. We’ll need to find a location, apply for grants, and work with the county to get the park incorporated. A small team is working on a list of potential locations and additional suggestions are welcomed. If you want to get involved to help this project become a reality, please contact James at jetzkorn@gmail.com. It will be a slow process but ultimately successful with a group of committed volunteers working together to see this project to fruition.
