Virajita Singh (Center for Sustainable Building Research) will lead the design and community input process for the Castle Park project near Crookston. Singh will be aided by a Landscape Architecture graduate student and input from a cohort of other CSBR researchers. According to Mike Christopherson writing for the Crookston Daily Times, "The effort to make Castle Park in Sampson's Addition a nature-based park through Discovery Grant funding gained momentum from discussions at the "Connecting Children and Nature" conference earlier this fall at the University of Minnesota, Crookston." Christopherson reports Singh will "collaborate with Eric Castle, assistant professor of Horticulture and Landscape Design at UMC, who will advise undergraduates from UMC as they work with the communities in site assessment, setting priorities for natural play area, developing renderings for the space, and assist with the installation of the play areas."
