Nanaimo’s Parks Recreation and Culture department aims to gauge public support for a science centre at Bowen Park through an open house.
A privately funded science centre is proposed by the Nanaimo Science and Sustainability Society. Public feedback will help the department assess the community’s support. The open house is set for Saturday (Sept. 8), 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the lower parking lot off of Wall Street near the volleyball courts.
Over the past year the society held a community visioning session, design charette and program development workshop regarding their plans for a science centre.
Information boards and a community survey will be available at the open house, as well as online at www.nanaimo.ca and can be e-mailed to anyone interested who cannot attend the open house. The survey regarding the proposed centre is still available online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/3SSNJ6C.
