Parks are an integral piece of any neighborhood, proven to reduce crime, revitalize local economies, and bring neighborhoods together.
In 2013, Glass House Collective hosted several community meetings where over 150 neighbors gathered to envision Glass Street’s future. The meetings concluded with goals to make Glass street cleaner, safer, and more welcoming. One of the first resulting projects was a park.
The CNE, Glass House Collective, TPL, and the local neighborhood association raised $10,000 for a matching grant to turn an abandoned property into a public green space. They sought to increase neighborhood investment and access to green space.
