Coming up this Tuesday, May 19th, the City of Spokane Parks and Recreation Department will be holding a public “visioning” meeting for the Southeast Soccer Complex on Regal Street. The meeting will start at 7:00pm and be at the Conference Center at ESD101 (4202 S. Regal Street).
This is an opportunity for neighborhood residents to talk about the current uses of the park and the need to better or different amenities. Want some basketball courts, come give your input. A better play area, splash pad, picnic shelters? Community gardens, better handicap access? Better bike or pedestrian connections to the neighborhood? Everything is on the table. The more input, the better.
For some background information, you can see the city-adopted Southgate Neighborhood Parks and Open Space Plan. This document was the output from a multi-year planning process a few years ago and the resulting plans were adopted by both the Parks Department and the Spokane City Council. There are sections in there that deal with the Southeast Sports Complex, but your specific input is encouraged as well.
If you have any questions you can contact us here or contact Al Vorderbruggen at the Spokane Parks and Recreation Department at 509-363-5495.
