The City of Elkhart Parks and Recreation Department and enFocus, a local nonprofit dedicated to building stronger communities in the South Bend-Elkhart region, will engage residents in neighborhoods adjacent to several community parks in community meetings. These online community conversations will be interactive discussions, where residents are invited to share how they are currently using the parks, the feeling of the park’s status, and their desires for the park’s future. Information gathered will serve as the first step in the development of a strategic plan to improve amenities at six unique parks: Hayden, Studebaker, High Dive, Weston, Langle, and Ullery.

Virtual meetings will be hosted weekly as follows:

Hayden Park – Thursday, February 11th, 4-5 pm and 7-8 pm
Weston Park – Thursday, February 25th, 4-5 pm & Sunday, February 28th, 1-2 pm
