2016 Recreational & Inclusive Park Redevelopment Initiative in Action
Project possible through grants from The Carlilian Foundation, The Wright Family Foundation & Anonymous Woodlawn Donor.
In 2016, the Carlilian and Wright Family Foundations each provided a grant towards our park's Recreational & Inclusive project which incorporated the installation of a new exercise area, a repaved basketball court, new fencing and privacy screening, and handicap accessible ramps to make our park more inclusive to all who visit. Funding was also provided by an anonymous philanthropic donor who grew up in Woodlawn. The purpose of the project was to provide more varied recreational options to meet the
community need for healthy living while addressing a broad range of ages and abilities.
