2020 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
This grant will add seating, games, and planters that can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities and by activating a new public space.
A bench is without a doubt a benefit for any pedestrian with aching feet, but being able to relax in a hammock is so much better. The city's visitor center and hammock park attract thousands of people a year, ranging from school groups to retirement home field trips. AARP funds helped spruce up the park with planters, outdoor games and â€” since hammocks aren't suitable for all users â€” benches.
