Sunflower Park

About the park

This is the first DYOP project to be developed, based on a neighborhood group that had been trying to improve its existing neighborhood park for a number of years, without success despite good intentions on all sides. Using the DYOP rubric, rapid progress was made and implementation will take place during 2011. It will be named Sunflower Park based on a “name the park” competition among the neighbors, which was won by an entry submitted by one of the children. Even before the installation, the neighborhood group has held numerous celebrations in the park-to-be, including a wildly successful Halloween party.
