Lancaster city government is holding back-to-back community workshops on Thursday, March 14, to gather public input on parks and recreation.

The first session, from 3 to 4:30 p.m., is at the Lancaster Science Factory, 454 New Holland Ave., on the city’s east side. It will be followed by one from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Lancaster Rec building, 517 Fairview Ave., on the west side.

The city’s Public Works Department is in the process of drafting a master plan for parks and open space. The sessions will allow residents to weigh in on park upgrades, activities added amenities they’d like to see.

Both workshops will have the same format and content, so residents should attend the one that’s most convenient for them, the city said.
