  1. I am a teacher at GPHS. One of my social studies classes will be working on the project this fall quarter. Should be an exciting hands-on experience.

    • That’s great news! The students are certainly integral to this entire project and we’d love to hear their voices. We’d like to encourage any kind of written support or verbal support, such as: 1)Write to your local Council Member, State Representative or the Governor. 2)Talk to people, family, friends and neighbors about what this park would mean to them. 3)Write to a local newspaper or have your class and/or friends 4)Start a blog about why Three Ring Gardens is important to them. Thank you for making this a part of the curriculum.

    • Thanks for your support! It’s greatly appreciated. Three Ring Gardens is really meant to be a hub on a site, community, city and regional scale. It’s a unique destination that, we think, will encourage fun recreation, a unique space for learning and community building. The students of GPHS certainly deserve a space like this.

      If you want to support this project, here are some ways you can help make Three Ring Gardens happen: 1)Write to your local Council Member, State Representative or the Governor. 2)Talk to people, family, friends and neighbors about what this park would mean to you. 3)Write to a local newspaper or have your class and/or friends 4)start a blog about why Three Ring Gardens is important to you.

      You have a powerful voice and what you have to say is valuable. Please feel free to pass any comments, questions or ideas our way!

  2. “Over two acres of land in the Midway super-block just north of Interstate 94 is $2 million.”
    Are you seriouse? Why is it so expensive?

    • You’re right, it is EXPENSIVE. The value of the land has a lot to do with the size of the parcel and this is a fairly large piece of land; Almost 2.5 acres. With the Light Rail coming in, it will only become more expensive! That’s why we’re trying to get student, community and government and private sector support as quickly as possible. Upon completion of Three Ring Gardens, the value of the surrounding properties will increase tremendously because this greenspace would be a regionally unique destination, making it a profitable project. More profitable than the price of what it’s worth today.

      We want your support! Here are some ways you can help make Three Ring Gardens happen: 1)Write to your local Council Member, State Representative or the Governor. 2)Talk to people, family, friends and neighbors about what this park would mean to you. 3)Write to a local newspaper or have your class and/or friends 4)start a blog about why Three Ring Gardens is important to you.
