We’re excited to announce that a new park is under construction in our neighborhood!
2200 Catherine Street Park is actually a corner lot on 22nd & Catherine Street that was developed as a pocket park in the 1960′s but was fenced in a few decades ago when it fell into disrepair. The neighborhood has been pushing for a rejuvenation for years but couldn’t secure funding; just this week they started work, and already have cleared the lot and painted the adjacent building. The park is just a 1 1/2 blocks away from us and we also pass by on our bike ride to work- we can’t wait to see it complete!
For more info, check out the South of South Neighborhood Association article (rendering about is from this article)
Progress photos and funding info can be found on the park’s page on Facebook
