GRAND AVENUE PARK
lando, volunteerism is more than a
good deed; it's about creating relationships
in the Grand Avenue Park
area. " We wanted to get the community
involved and invested in the
new park. People from the neighborhood,
city employees, corporations
and clubs all came together to
plant trees, shrubs, add mulch and
install irrigation, " she says.
During the recent planting event
at Grand Avenue Park, a group that
lent a hand was the Central Florida
Gator Club (cfgators.com). The
club " engages University of Florida
alumni and fans in supporting
the Gator Nation and our communities.
We regularly host events
and volunteer opportunities,
including
community cleanups, food
drives, scholarships and partnering
with local charities, " says Erich J.
Krzyzak, a city spokesperson. " Gators
GreenUp Orlando is a fantastic
opportunity to get involved in a
way that highlights the importance
of nature, community engagement
and our shared responsibility to
be good caretakers of our environment.
Grand Avenue Park is a
space focused on connecting the
local community and providing a
healthy outdoor recreation space
Orlandoans of all ages can enjoy. "
Investing in the Future
For District 6 City Commissioner
Bakari F. Burns, the renovation of
Grand Avenue Park is just part of
the revitalization he envisions for
the larger area. " Orlando is a growing
city and matching our growth
with great amenities for our residents
is vital for a healthy community.
I'm proud to represent such a
beautiful city and can't wait for the
community to experience it.
" The renovation is adding not
just new equipment, but [also] new
dimensions to the park. Instead of
playgrounds and ballfields, space
will focus on health and wellness
through the items donated. Playgrounds
will still be part of the
park; the other elements, such as
the exercise equipment, will create
an atmosphere promoting family
