Thank you to those of you who made it to the Your Parks, Your Future Community Open House earlier this month. It was great to see aquatics supporters making their voices heard.
Many of you who were not able to attend have asked how you can give the City feedback on what you think should be the City’s priorities as they update the master plans and make decisions about programming and updating facilities at Heather Farm Park, (including the 50-year old Clarke Swim Center) Civic Park, and the Shadelands Art Center.
The City has announced the Your Parks, Your Future Campaign will have booths at two upcoming farmers’ markets:
• Sunday, October 21, at the Downtown Farmers’ Market, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
• Saturday, October 27, at the Shadelands Farmers’ Market, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
At these booths, you can learn more about the Your Parks, Your Future campaign and give feedback on what is important to you. The City is taking feedback from all facility users, not just those who live in Walnut Creek. To learn more about the City’s Your Parks, Your Future Campaign visit walnut-creek.org/yourparks.
It is critical that everyone effected by the future of the swim center gives feedback to the City during this campaign so the City understands how important the Clarke Swim Center is to our community and that its renovation is a priority. Please talk to your friends and neighbors about how important the Clarke Swim Center is to you and your family. Encourage them to make their voices heard too.

Thank you for your support of aquatics!
Mike Heaney, Walnut Creek Aquatic Foundation President
