City planners, consultants and a citizens advisory group are looking at how Windjammer Park in Oak Harbor, Wash., can be rebuilt and improved after the construction of the sewage treatment plant is complete, the Whidbey News-Times reported.

Should the RV park return? Should the lagoon and the ballfields be moved or removed? What about adding a splash park, amphitheater or a community center?

Development Services Director Steve Powers presented the Oak Harbor City Council with drawings and descriptions of three current concepts for the park during a workshop Wednesday. 

The themes of the three concepts are “recreation,” “naturalistic” and “civic.”

“These are just concepts,” he emphasized. “They are just ideas of how things could go together. We are a long ways from a proposed alternative.”

The community can learn more about the concepts at a meeting of the citizens advisory group and a public open house 5:30-7:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 29 at the Elks Lodge.

Powers noted how large Windjammer Park truly is.

The park consists of 28.5 acres on the waterfront in downtown Oak Harbor. It was three little league ballfields, a swimming lagoon, an RV park, a waterfront trail, playground equipment and open space.
