Eastside Franklin Park

Eastside Franklin Park
Flint, Michigan

Community partners raised 9 lots with structures in various states of neglect. Eastside Franklin Park has since repurposed the area with a picturesque park, covered shelter, and garden beds. They love engaging youth and watching them gain a sense of purpose working in the gardens.  More about this project >
