Change isn’t easy, and it doesn’t happen overnight! However, each year Park Pride actively helps neighborhoods to transform their parks and communities through programs. See the difference that your dollars help to make possible through the Park Visioning Program:
Vine City Park
In 2005, the Vine City community asked for Park Pride’s help in transforming two acres of debris and kudzu covered land into the first park in their neighborhood. Park Pride’s Visioning team worked with neighbors and other stakeholders over several months to help them refine their dreams for the new park into a conceptual master plan or “park vision,” which included a playground, amphitheater, seating and grilling areas, and plantings. The plan was implemented, and in 2007 the ribbon was cut on Vine City Park. In 2013, when adjacent properties were acquired, Park Pride brought the neighbors together once again to create a vision for expansion of the park. The community identified exercise equipment, green infrastructure and a playground expansion as key priorities for Phase II. Implementation of these improvements is underway and is scheduled for completion in fall 2015.
