Neighbors Unite to Make City Parcel Green Space

An under-utilized and unkempt city owned parcel on 10th Street may be transformed into a neighborhood park, thanks to the work of a group of citizens represented by the Friends of Tenth Street Park. The Friends of Tenth Street Park is composed of seven board members representing the Bladgen Alley/Naylor Court Neighborhood Association, the Clyde, the Eleven, Quincy Court, Quincy Park, the Whitman, and one at-large representative. The group is concerned about the existing condition of the parcel and shares a common vision to turn it into a "a positive element of the neighborhood, featuring green space, trees, and benches that can be used by residents as low-impact recreation space. " The 501(c)(3) organization was formed to represent the neighborhood’s goals, as well as to participate in the design, development and maintenance of a park.
