Parchester Village neighbors – and their kids – can weigh in on park renovation tonight


A family planning event will be held tonight for the much-anticipated renovation of the Parchester Village park and playground.

The fields at 900 Williams Drive were selected by Livie & Luca, the Berkeley-based children’s shoe company, and the City of Richmond to undergo a renovation. The project will be similar to last year’s renovation at Belding-Garcia Park, which was accomplished in one day with the help of hundred community volunteers.

The rebuilding day for Parchester Village’s park is set for Oct. 25.

In preparation for that date, a Design Day event is being held tonight at the Parchester Community Center, located at the site of the park set for renovation. From 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., the community’s children will “put crayons to paper and show us what a great place to play means,” according to an event flyer. Then from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., adults will discuss their wants and needs for the park.

Here are the important future dates:
