The Community surrounding the Lincoln Elementary School site intends to redesign and rebuild the playground area into a state of the art public park.

Working with residents, neighborhood organizations and local businesses, we envision a completely redesigned space, no longer simply a playground, but an important space for everyone in the community – school children, neighborhood children looking for a safe and inviting place to spend their out of school time, families, older adults…in short, everyone.

The project is a three-tiered exercise:

1) Planning and design of the park
2) Fundraising with partners
3) Collaborating with the community by inviting a broad range of community members into the process.

The goal is to create a space that is a playground, a community center, a park and a heart of the neighborhood.
