Location: Brookside Avenue, 12th Street, Arsenal Avenue.
Bio: The Fletcher Park Triangle has existed for over 100 years, but only recently through a partnership between KIB and the Windsor Park Neighborhood Association, has it been restored to its former glory. First built by George Kessler as part of the Brookside Parkway, the park became less accessible over the years resulting in less visitors to the space. The park now features native plants and grassy areas all while maintaining its historic layout.
Interests and Hobbies: This park loves a comeback story. After becoming rundown from lack of use, the Windsor Park Neighborhood Association brought it back to life with help from KIB. Visitors can walk through this historic park to see native plants and art pieces. #OptOutside to this pocket park while walking along the Pogue’s Run Trail after a big Thanksgiving dinner.
Looking For: Ways to stay trendy and cool. I may be over 100 years old, but stewardship dollars help keep me young by maintaining my native plants and grassy areas. If you would like to donate to projects like me, please click here.
