Join interactive design meeting for Jackie Renninger Park on May 21

Juneau, Alaska (KINY) – CBJ Parks & Recreation and Corvus Design will hold an interactive public meeting to talk about the future of Jackie Renninger Park (Pipeline Skate Park) on Tuesday, May 21 at 6 p.m. in the Valley Library.

The Pipeline Skate Park within Jackie Renninger Park is currently in need of several structural and safety improvements, and Parks & Rec is taking this opportunity to explore what additional features could help the park meet the needs of local residents.

In addition to presentations and Q&A, the meeting will include a hands-on opportunity for attendees to design their ideal park using a large site plan and scaled cut-outs of essential park elements. This is a unique chance for park users and neighborhood residents to visualize their ideas and think about how additions like sports courts or picnic shelters could complement the skating areas that will remain essential to the park.

CBJ and Corvus will also share the results of last year’s community survey about the park and a Neighborhood Park Assessment.

Parks & Rec will also hold a gathering tailored to younger participants on Wednesday, May 22 at 5:30 p.m. at the Zach Gordon Youth Center.

Professional skateboarder Kanten Russell with New Line Skateparks will join this meeting remotely to talk about current trends in skate park design.
