Place Hammocks throughout the park for relaxing. Add an outdoor roller rink, bocce and shuffleboard court. Have a day dedicated to flying kites, picnics and games.
Create a professional level Skate Park and BMX track. Similar parks have reported a decrease in crime and positive economic impact. Families bring their children, stay for lunch, and shop at local businesses. This is an opportunity to promote contests, attract professional skaters and advertise the Active Largo culture.
Work with business owners and developers to build new store fronts that line the north side of 1st Ave. NW that face W. Bay Drive rather than lining W. Bay Drive. Once complete the new store fronts can be populated by the existing businesses. This will allow for much needed parking and create an area for Largo residence to congregate. Today this corridor is a pass thru for traffic and the limited parking is not conducive to supporting these business owners.
Downtown Largo should definitely be more pedestrian friendly. I also think there is an interest for it being golf cart friendly also. Considering how many people may not want to walk or drive but want to get to local spots more economically, safely, and leisurely. Residents and visitors would just need golf cart crossings and lanes as well as a safe access from surrounding neighborhoods (access that leads to downtown as well as Largo Central park.) Many cities in the bay area are already doing this and more will be following (ie. Dunedin, Pinellas Park)
Have a safe place where parents can take their teenagers and feel that their teens will be safe but will be able to socialize and have fun at the same time.
The fire that destroyed the businesses in the early morning hours of July 5th left The Fireplace Restaurant, House of Shades, and Debbie's Hair and Salon with many displaced employees. I would like to see the community come together and help raise money through an event or donations to help the workers and owners. https://youtu.be/6J0nSBThs-Q
