Georgina Bike Park Public Design Forum. (Ontario, Canada)
Progressive Trail Design will be designing and hopefully building the new Bike Park amenity to the Georgina Civic Centre Multi-Season Outdoor Recreation Campus, Town of Georgina, Ontario, CAN. The Civic Centre will be a massive outdoor recreational facility that will include a rock climbing wall, water park, ice rink, ropes course, the list goes on…. We will be working with the design firm, AECOM, as part of their design team to develop this one-of-a-kind facility.
The purpose of this design forum is to provide a platform for the public, specifically the citizens of Georgina and the surrounding area, to interact directly with PTD in order to share ideas, desires, needs, concerns, questions, opinions, etc… The #1 goal of all our parks is to meet the desires of the local riding contingent. It is ultimately the locals who will be the stewards of this park once we are gone, so it is important that we design/build something that they will have a vested interest in. This post will be under the “Pages” column on right hand side of Blog for future reference. Thanks for your participation. We look forward to it!
