particular, the small, diverse Oak
Grove neighborhood has an even
mix of Black, Latino and white
community members of all ages,
more than 1,000 of which have
limited access to parks.
Focusing not only on area residents' health, Lynnbrook Park

also will heal and repair the surrounding environment. Currently,
the site is composed of an empty
lot, half of which is paved, with a
drainage ditch running the length
of the property. The ditch was
created during the Works Progress Administration (WPA) era

The Lynnbrook Park design came from
a creative community engagement
process that centered community relationships and needs to determine what
features should be included in the park.
