Community Foundation, city to unveil Wheeler Park Vision Plan on Tuesday

Thanks to the leadership of the Community Foundation of Coffee County, an affiliate of Community Foundation of Central Georgia, and the City of Douglas, Wheeler Park now has a new vision plan to help guide development of park improvements over the next few years.  

The community is invited to attend the presentation of the Wheeler Park Vision Plan on Tuesday, September 17 at 2 pm at the Douglas-Coffee County Library– Satilla Regional Library located at 200 South Madison Avenue, Suite D.  The plan will be unveiled and the community can learn how they can be involved in the transformation of the park.

CFCC teamed up Interface Studio LLC in May 2019 in order to establish a new, community-based vision for Wheeler Park, which included research and analysis, community outreach and a conception park design. Together, CFCC and Interface Studio learned from local residents how the park currently met their needs, how it didn’t, and what they would like to see in the park in the coming years, whether it be physical improvements or new park programs to activate the park and bring the community together. Based on the community’s input and discussion during the public meeting, Interface Studio tailored a vision plan to provide a blueprint for the transformation of Wheeler Park. 

The Board of Directors of the Community Foundation of Coffee County approved the plan on July 10, 2019, and The City of Douglas and The Coffee County Commission approved it shortly thereafter.

Julia Wood, VP of Donor and Development Services for the Community Foundation of Central Georgia, said “The Wheeler Park planning process is a prime example of how the Community Foundation offers leadership that brings a community together around a shared interest.  Through public-private partnerships, we will work together to enhance Wheeler Park the Douglas.”  Wood said.

Join us for Wheeler Park Vision Plan Reveal and Launch Party at 2 pm on Tuesday, September 17 at the Douglas-Coffee County Public Library to learn about the priorities for the park and how you can get involved!
