Frogtown Park and Farm
OVERVIEW

“Great public spaces are where celebrations are held, social and economic exchanges take place, friends run into each other, and cultures mix.  They catalyze private investment, define community identity and build bridges to each other”  Project for Public Spaces

In partnership with the Trust for Public Land and Frogtown Gardens, the City is in the acquisition phase of a new park for the Frogtown Neighborhood.  The 12.7 acre parcel (old Wilder Foundation Headquarters) will consist of a natural area, a recreation area and an urban demonstration farm.  Neighbors will be able to learn about farming traditions and urban farming in their own backyards, and also have space for exercise and a quiet connection to nature.


UPDATES

Construction contract is out for rebid for fall 2014 or spring 2015 construction.
Construction on initial site development delayed: The project development contract was put out for bids in early June. There was only one bidder for the work and the bid was over budget. The project will be rebid with an option for a spring construction schedule in order to accommodate more competitive bids. This will push out the growing season for the farm, as well.
