Summit on the Park Spotlight

Summit on the Park Feasibility Study Results Are In!

A special presentation will be held on Tuesday, February 4th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Summit on the Park’s Chestnut Room, to review the results of the Summit’s Feasibility Study and Site Analysis that was conducted last November.  Summit members and other interested parties are encouraged to attend.

Participants are asked to please RSVP online or via email to pstevens@canton-mi.org.  Participants are also welcome to attend without prior notice. Light refreshments will also be provided. 

GreenPlay, LLC, a nationally-known parks and recreation management consulting firm, has been hired to oversee this project to determine if space enhancements or repurposing is needed at the Summit on the Park. Representatives from GreenPlay, LLC will be onsite to provide the results of their research.

Thank you again to all who participated in one of our previous focus groups or public input meetings. We hope that you will be able to join us on February 4th to stay informed about and continue to participate in the Summit on the Park’s Feasibility Study that will help shape future services of Canton’s popular community recreation center.
