Piety Hill Pocket Parks
62 neighbors attending the Piety Hill neighborhood quarterly meeting requested a grant to repair and restore two pocket parks, located at 740 Hazelwood and 801 West Philadelphia, so they can be used safely and to their full potential by the community. The grant will fund new fencing and new signs at both parks. Additionally, grass seeding and improved horse shoe pit backboards will be executed at the Philadelphia park. Additional work at the Hazelwood Park includes planting flowers at the butterfly garden section, and spreading child-safe wood chips in the play area. The community will take ownership of the project and supply all the necessary labor. The Central Detroit Christian Organization (a longstanding nonprofit located in the neighborhood, staffed by the neighbors) will provide a project manager at no cost. EVO Detroit will supply materials and equipment.
