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

ACQUISITION A SUCCESS! The City became the new property owners of Frogtown Park and Farm on December 4, 2013!
