the project

We appreciate all the neighborhood support we received during 2016!  We loved meeting new neighbors, digging in the dirt, and watching the flowers grow.  We've expanded our gang of volunteers, and we look forward to keeping Father Fagan Park in bloom again during 2017.  

the steps

We anticipate 3 seasons of plantings in the park:  in May, we'll put in spring and summer flowers; during September, we'll add in some autumnal color and in December, we'll finish out the year by adding holiday greenery.  Some may know the the City Council provided funding for a renovation of the park back in 2011.  It looks like the Parks Department may finally start the project in 2017, although no contract has been signed.  If our planting season gets interrupted by a renovation, we'll save any funds raised to support the park post-renovation.  

why we're doing it

The Parks Department doesn't have the staff or resources to dedicate to the park; it's up to us!  If you'd like to learn more about the park and our past efforts, please visit facebook.com/FatherFaganPark.  Or read about us at https://www.ioby.org/blog/awesome-project-new-lease-on-life-for-a-piazza-type-park-in-soho
