Pennsylvania Park: a meeting to discuss the future

The house on 1st and Johnson will soon be razed, expanding Pennsylvania Park (also known as No Name Park).

How can we best use the new public space and enhance the park?

  • Extending the bike/pedestrian path
  • A terraced seating area
  • Flower beds
  • Edible landscaping
  • Sculpture

Join your neighbors, Wednesday, August 3rd at 5:30pm, at Bashford Church (329 North st), to discuss the possibilities.

You can also share you thoughts by adding a comment to this post.
