PRCR Department to host online meetings Tuesday about Holding Park Inclusive Playground

Friday, September 22, 2023 - 12:12pm

The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department will share updates on the Holding Park Inclusive Playground, currently under construction at 133 W. Owen Ave., and offer area residents the opportunity to ask questions about the facility during special “Talk With Me Tuesday” online meetings Tuesday, Sept. 26, at noon and 6 p.m.

Hosted by PRCR Director Ruben Wall, Specialized Programs & Inclusion Specialist Olivia Atkinson, and Parks & Recreation Maintenance Manager Randy Hoyle, the online sessions will include an update on construction (now scheduled for completion in December) and an overview of the facility layout and fencing.

“We recognize that our community is excited about the inclusive park and understand that some have expressed concerns about the proposed layout and fencing,” said Wall. “We are hosting these online meetings to give residents a chance to get answers to their questions.”

Advance registration for both sessions is required at Registrants will have the opportunity to submit questions in advance. Several days prior to the online sessions, registrants will receive an email with information about joining the session.

The concept for the September 26 meetings is based on Atkinson’s weekly “Talk With Me Tuesdays” program which offers a forum for residents and disability advocates to share their ideas about community needs, programming opportunities, and disability networking.
