Santa Clara Park is a future community park site currently comprised of two open fields with informal walking paths on the north and east sides of Madison Middle School, off Wilkes Drive. City of Eugene Parks and Open Space has held two of three public meetings intended to help create a vision and gather input on conceptual plans for this 35-acre park in Santa Clara. The first took place in February and the second was held virtually last week.
Didn’t make it? Take the 2nd online survey (available through September 7th), watch the meeting recording, sign up for email updates, and learn about virtual office hours on the project’s Engage Eugene page.
The workshop report and survey results from the first public meeting and survey are available now on Engage Eugene at the Santa Clara Community Park project page and will be updated with information from the second public meeting and survey. In general, the survey from the first workshop showed a high level of interest in the community for many of the typical elements that we see in a community park, including a playground, restroom, shade, open lawn, courts, flexible event space and picnic facilities. There is also a high regard for natural areas and trails. The concept options being developed reflect these priorities.
