Pocket Park for Warrendale
We have recently won the Project Evergreen Contest where we have won the renovation of a safe green space for children and families but this does not include any play equipment. There is a grant available offering part of the cost of the playscape but we have to come up with around $10,000. to cover the balance. We have already personally purchased the lots but are in need of help to raise the additional funds. Adding a pocket park to our current community space is much needed with the closest park from the garden being about a mile away. Even though the garden welcomes the youth as we all know children get bored very easily. The pocket park will allow parents,grandparents to still volunteer at the garden and keep an eye on the children across the street. With so many abandoned houses/lots in the Warrendale area and no where for the children to play we have seen many children throughout the years playing in and around these abandoned houses. Please help The In Memory of Community Garden and the Warrendale Community Organization (both organizations are a 501c3-non profit) to create a clean, safe pocket park in the Warrendale Community for our children.
