Following the completion of renovations and improvements at eight city of Grand Rapids parks this past summer, six more receive facelifts in 2016.

The planning process for Dickinson, Camelot, Campau, Douglas, Mary Waters and Mulick parks moves forward this month with four public workshops.

Officials are seeking resident input, ideas and feedback on concepts and designs provided by two local firms.

Workshops will be held in the evenings this Tuesday and Wednesday, and next Monday, October 19.

A fourth workshop will be held Saturday, October 24, at Dickinson Park at 2 p.m. 

The money comes from a voter-approved .98 mill parks tax levy.

Officials say that funds about $4 million annually f0r parks improvements.
