KaBOOM! Grant for New Playground
In 2017 the Parks & Recreation Department received a national KaBOOM! grant to build a new playground at the park that formerly housed the Junior Achievement organization. We were selected from a number of possible sites due to neighborhood need and the value a playground could bring to the underserved area.
This playground build was unlike any other the City has done. Over 300 community members volunteered to help build the playground in just one day! It is this type of project that demonstrates the spirit of giving and the sense of community in the hearts of our citizens and staff.
Regarding the existing building at Garfield Park, we do not have plans to make upgrades or repairs to the building. Rather, we hope to remove the building and replace it with another park feature, such as a basketball court or pump track for bicycles and skateboards. We do not currently have a timeline for this to be completed due to a combination of things, including funding sources, other City planning projects and current budget constraints.
