Leaders of a project that aims to improve Robinson Park will soon hold the project’s first workshop.
The park is home to a boulder that was sacred to the Kanza tribe, but was made into a monument honoring Kansas settlers, as the Journal-World reported. The Between the Rock and a Hard Place project team will lead an Imagining Workshop on Saturday. As part of the workshop, project leaders will ask the public to help them imagine new ways of understanding, accessing and using Robinson Park, according to the project website.
The workshop is free and all are welcome. The workshop will take place Saturday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in meeting room B of the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St.
