These engagement events are informal, so you can stop by for a few minutes or stay and talk for a while. There are posters and flyers to learn about the planning process, Great Parks staff and planning team members to talk with and ask questions, and several activities to capture your feedback and ideas for the future of Great Parks.
Also, stay tuned for two special events that will take place in Miami Whitewater Forest and Mitchell Memorial Forest.
