This park opened in 1994. It has half an acre of land. It has a picnic shelter…. And not much else. There’s a placard, but it’s so moldy you can’t read it. It’s on the corner of a block, and was made to be a safe section in, what was at the time, a rough neighborhood. It was created to be a brightly lit, safe space, in someone’s walk home late at night. I’m unsure of its effectiveness as the time, but walking around it today, in a largely gentrified neighborhood, the park is outdated and no longer really serves its purpose. This park desperately needs a facelift. There’s no parking, nothing to do, and not much to appreciate.
