Taking Back A Park In Baltimore, Md.
Originally published on Fri August 17, 2012 10:47 am
Just two years ago, Warwick Park in Baltimore City sat neglected and overgrown while children set up hoops on busy streets to play ball in the middle of traffic.
Then Fayette Street Outreach Organization brought together neighbors and young people from throughout the community and engaged an attorney from our Community Law Center to advocate for the park's restoration.
"Without Community Law Center's help we wouldn't be here today," says Tim Bridges of Fayette Street Outreach.
Now, the park is a community gathering space and example of what neighbors can accomplish. Working together.
