FROG News: Survey

Report: Frog Survey Results Published
Saturday, March 2, 2013

The FROG survey has closed and the results are in. Summarized opinions will help guide Frog park improvements and FROG committee decisions.

Many filled out the survey online or completed paper versions handed out at the park area and greenbelt. There were 278 Frog Park patrons and community member respondents.

Results showed the following highest importance and priority ratings:

  • More swings (baby and regular) at both Redondo/Little Frog and Hardy/Big Frog
  • Improved crosswalks at Hudson/Claremont
  • Noise reduction
  • More picnic tables
  • Art features that focus on Native California wildlife, native flowers and trees and frogs. There was notable interest in mosaics, slightly higher ratings for art about kids than art about dogs, and slightly higher ratings for Impressionist vs. geometric art
  • Additional features receiving importance ratings but slightly lower ratings are in the online presentation and include improving the Dog Park; more events for families and children; and more green space.
  • Open-ended comments offered ideas for new park features and the needs for continued maintenance, a solution to the homeless in the parks and to improve, maintain and add bathrooms. Art comments suggested historical themes, sea life, trees, interactive art, and community created art.
