Slopes association receives $15K grant for South Side Park
The South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association (SSSNA) has received a $15,000 grant from The Birmingham Foundation for continued development in South Side Park, located off Mission Street in the South Side Slopes.
The grant will fund projects with a focus on connecting the South Side Slopes/Hilltop communities to South Side Park and promoting the park as a neighborhood amenity. Planned projects include youth programming as a way to introduce kids in the surrounding communities to the park, trail improvement projects working in conjunction with MWCDC’s Emerald Trail Corps., and new signage for trail heads and other points of interests within the park.
“The grant will allow the SSSNA to continue work to make the park a destination for the entire community, and help keep the momentum going,” SSSNA president Brian Oswald commented.
The grant ensures trail work and youth engagement with the park continues. The SSSNA has committed to improving the park and transforming it into a community amenity for all to appreciate and enjoy.
