Creating Community at Play
In a Nutshell:
Friends of Jackson Park believe open space strengthens communities.
We are concerned about the availability of green space and parkland to accommodate our changing community.
Our objective is to ensure that Jackson Park remains an asset for everyone who lives here.
After years of community meetings and workshops with residents, we have crafted a master plan to redevelop Jackson Park to meet the needs of our rapidly growing neighborhood.
Our short-term goal: To realize our plan, we are concentrating on identifying funding sources and support from our community
Our long-term goal: To renovate the whole park, including the historic clubhouse to capture open space and leverage its untapped potential for the community.
The redevelopment plans offer:
600% increase of public open space
125% increase in size of playground area
225% increase of community garden space
