Parks looking for input on repairs

A panel is going to decide which little projects will be a big deal for public parks.

Nearly new Recreation and Park Department General manager Phil Ginsburg  ran a marathon shortly after his appointment to raise money for simple ways to improve parks.

The department was taking suggestions near the beginning of Ginsburg’s appointment until the end of August – some of them including ping pong tables or motorized recreational centers. 

Rec and Park spokeswoman Lisa Seitz-Gruwell said the next step is selecting a panel, hopefully by Oct. 1. The panel will decide on some of more than 100 ideas.
