Community Meetings #2
A community meeting was held on Thursday February 27, 2020 to review the three schematic design plan options of Boulware Park with the community.

Stickers were provided for community members to vote on different plan options and note cards to allow specific comments to be captured for each schematic design.

Community Meetings #1
A community meeting was held on Saturday November 9, 2019, to provide the community with an opportunity to share their input on the park facilities they would most like to see maintained or added to the Boulware Park site and the newly purchased park land across the street (former AT&T site). The community was asked to provide input using a series of sticker boards. The stickers were used to identify the park facilities that are supported by the community and to prioritize the facilities the community would like to see maintained or added. If a specific park facility was not included on the board, the community was asked to write in the facility along with comments to provide further feedback.
The images below show the boards and plans used at the meeting along with some images of the event.
What Park Facilities would you like?
The facilities shown on the boards in these images were selected from current existing site facilities in Boulware Park and those park facilities identified in the Palo Alto Parks Master Plan.
