Abstract
Star Pond Park provides one of the largest open spaces in the city of Caliston. Known as a refuge within the urban city, Star Pond Park attracts a diverse group of visitors from both Caliston and nearby communities who use the park for a variety of recreational activities including walking, cycling, picnicking, jogging, dog walking, socializing, and bird watching. Over the past decade, the number of users has increased dramatically. This heightened popularity has resulted in more conflicts between different types of users who must share the limited park space with each other. In order to get a better understanding of the conflicts and to begin finding workable solutions, the city has engaged Consens-R-Us, a local non-profit organization that provides facilitation and mediation services. As a first step in its conflict assessment, facilitators from Consens-R-Us will be holding a community meeting that will be open to any users of Star Pond Park who would like to share their experience as a park user and help formulate ideas for overcoming user conflicts. The goal of the community meeting is to begin to develop an understanding of how the park is used, what types of conflicts arise, and what might be done to manage these challenges.
