Partnership Unveils Community Vision
We're pleased to present the community's vision for a revitalized Dunningham Triangle! Working with People Make Parks
, the 82nd Street Partnership gathered community input
through a series of visioning days held this past fall. All the great programming and design ideas that emerged were compiled to form this conceptual rendering of what our plaza space could look like in the near future. With movable tables and chairs, umbrellas, lush gardens, and a performance area, Dunningham Triangle can become a vibrant year-round gathering place. In the coming weeks we will present to the City's Parks Department to further discuss project scope and timeline. We will be sure to keep you posted on this exciting project.
