On October 10, 2015 Friends of Mosholu Parkland engaged over 100 participants at their first Community Visioning event for Mosholu Parkway held at Kossuth Playground (Norwood, Bronx @ E Mosholu Parkway North between Kossuth and Steuben Ave. With Partnerships for Park’s support, the friends group designed and used 5 People Make Parks visioning tools -Voting Boards, Wish Objects, Story Map, Design Hoops, Model Making- to survey nearby residents, playground users, children, seniors, parents, teens, english speaking and non-english speaking persons.
Through continued community engagement, partnership building and advocacy, their volunteer efforts have helped to raise over $3 million from Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz and Council Member Andy Cohen for the reconstruction of the playground and basketball court at the site.
Read up on their findings in the Kossuth Playground Community Visioning Report!
