The Skycrest Neighbors Association recently formed an events committee and challenged themselves to come up with 30 days of events to have in Crest Lake Park as a way to invite people back to the public space.
They started with a list of 15 ideas including a candle light vigil and sky lantern release, sidewalk chalk art and picnic in the park.
Some of the ideas the committee comes up with as well as creating a resolution regarding Crest Lake Park will be discussed at the Clearwater Neighborhoods Coalition meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4 at the Salvation Army, 1521 Druid Road.
We also asked Clearwater Patch readers for suggestions.
Here is what we got:
Laurie Meggesin: "These are all great ideas. I might add a 5 de Mayo celebration, a Day of the Child/Dia del Nino festival, and a dog-related event tied to Crest Lake's popular dog park. Kudos to Skycrest residents for your wonderful ideas and initiative!"
Michael D.: "What about a 5k around the lake? They have a nice long sidewalk, which would make for a good small race. Break up by age groups, so not everyone is racing at the same time."
Michael Cherry: "Have an Animal health care day and fun with your dogs!!"
If you go:
