Lessons learned

The contrasting needs and perceptions of communities surrounding the park proved an issue during the development and implementation stages of the park. If this project was repreated, the Friends of Fernbrae Meadows group could engage more effectively with all communities surrounding the park and the dis-engaged community could involve themeselves in activities and events in the park to increase the social cohesion of the two communities.
