Museum Square Questionnaire

The City of Woodstock is seeking public input regarding a potential redevelopment of Museum Square. Please help the City by taking this short 5-minute survey.  

Why redevelop this important downtown space?

More and more special events and multi-use community activities are being requested in the downtown.  Revitalizing Museum square would create a varied activity space that can accommodate this growing demand and increase the level of services to the citizens of Woodstock.

What could a new Museum Square look like?

·         The main Fountain and veteran spruce trees are to remain untouched

·         The Fountain area will be re-imagined as a more dynamic contemplative space and seating area will be backed by alternating fountain jets set in large raised gardens on both the west and east side.

·         A stage and screen are to offer a multi-purpose event space area central to the square.

·         The event space can remain open or be programmed to accommodate the stage/ movie screen. The east fountain planter will also provide a seat wall to face the space.

·         Pavers and bollards will define activity areas such as the fountain area, event space, seating / respite areas, spray and play alley space.

·         A new Chess board area.

·         The front of the Museum will be opened up and more accessible visually. Wide stairs can double as seating and raised garden planting areas will complement the architecture.

·         The entrance to the Museum on the south east façade will be opened up to be more welcoming and accessible.

·         A new spray and play alley will reinvent the town crier walkway. Kids and adults alike will be able to step on a trigger button and in ground fountains will be set off in random patterns. The spray and play alley will be in a thin line allowing passersby to walk on either side of the fountains when in use and not get wet.

·         Seating and tree plantings will be provided east of the spray and play alley and will redefine and expand the existing respite / eating area located there currently.
