Mercy Bush Neighborhood Park

This beloved 0.67-acre neighborhood park was born of successful neighborhood activism, an extensive public outreach process, and creative community input. A park that feels like a public garden, it offers a full range of recreational uses, including: open lawns for free play, group picnics, climbing structures, water play, swings, a dry stream bed for adventure play, a solar calendar, heritage trees, and gracious pathways.  The final design was developed in part from a sketch plan prepared by 12-year old Amy Davis, an active participant in the neighborhood workshops.
