Feedback Sought On Playground Upgrades At Nye Beach Park

The Newport Parks and Recreation Department is announcing a public community

engagement meeting on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, for the anticipated playground

upgrades at Sam Moore Parkway. The goal of the engagements is to gain a better

understanding of the community’s wants and needs to assist the Parks planning team

with potential playground design decisions. The objective for the project is to deliver an on-trend playground that is functional, safe, inclusive, and enhances recreation and the play experience in the Nye Neighborhood. Attendees will be shown design concepts based on a broad range of development options and asked to give feedback to refine them to become the best possible community park.

“We know that involving our residents is the key to delivering successful improvements

in our parks and facilities,” said Parks and Recreation Director Mike Cavanaugh.

“Understanding that community engagement is not a one size fits all approach, the

planning team is using a variety of strategies to connect with community members

including, but not limited to, attending public meetings, administering online/in-person

surveys, and scheduling meet and greets in the parks with the hope of reaching as

many people as possible.”

The meeting will be held from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM at Newport Recreation Center, 225

SE Avery Street. Park staff and consultants will be on hand to answer questions.

Community members who cannot attend will have the opportunity to complete an online

survey through the City website. After the online survey closes, City staff will organize

and prioritize the community’s feedback. Conceptual renderings and cost estimates will

be drafted and then presented to the City Council for review. For more information or questions, please contact Mike Cavanaugh at 541-574-5453 or
