WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) –- Wyoming’s parks and recreation department is holding a meeting next month to allow the public to weigh in on how to rebuild Ideal Park – a park that was severely damaged when a tornado touched down in the area in July.
The community planning meeting will be held Dec. 2 at Ideal Park Christian Reformed Church at 6:30 p.m., according to a release from the City of Wyoming.
The EF-1 tornado touched down in Wyoming on July 6, 2014 and destroyed 98 percent of the park’s trees, as well as its playgrounds, the city said.
In the months since the tornado, parks and rec crews have removed damaged equipment, downed trees and debris.
The city now wants input from the community on how to redesign the park, including the park’s basketball court, tennis courts and parking lot, the release said.
Anyone who can’t make it to the meeting can email their ideas to Parks_info@wyomingmi.gov or mail them to:
