This meeting is an opportunity for the design team at Mayer/Reed to share their initial concepts and designs for these two important elements of the park, and get valuable feedback and suggestions from the public to ensure that the park can best meet the needs of the Brentwood-Darlington community.

Specifically, we would like to discuss:
