Pleasant Ridge residents are invited to take part in the process of designing Gainsboro Park. Residents recently approved a parks millage to make improvements, and the City is working with mobileLAB to bring the community together to have a say in how it turns out.

“We’re very excited to collaborate with our residents to create the blueprint for an excellent community park. This mobileLAB event will be the first step towards creating a vision for Reid_Sally_115excellence that we will work to implement over the coming year,” said Pleasant Ridge City Manager James Breuckman.

There is a kick-off event on Thursday, July 16 with a 5-day mobileLAB event held entirely in Gainsboro Park. The kick-off ice cream social is for all interested parties, followed by special focus group sessions, a drop-in design workshop, prioritization pit stop and finally a community celebration.

The mobileLAB will include the following events, all of which will be held at or near the Gainsboro Shelter:
