    Great – loved the kids (and the music). And found Colima on Google Earth. But where’s the park exactly?

      Hi Gord,

      The park doesn’t show up as green space on Google Maps. I’ve sent a screenshot of the park in satellite view to Sharon. You can see the football pitch in the middle. Technology is amazing!

    The mayor’s enthusiastic endorsement of the process should help other mayors to understand the effectiveness and political advantages of engaging their citizens in planning their neighbourhood spaces. This is good for everyone!
