Project description and goals

The project proposes a cluster of pocket parks as an extension of Kruse Park located in Cleveland’s southeast side. In addition to the park expansion, the project aims to address blight, and to maintain the value of the houses in the Lee-Harvard neighborhood. By incorporating community involvement in the parks’ development, the project also provides educational opportunities for both residents and youth.

About ReImagining a More Sustainable Cleveland:
Re-Imagining Greater Cleveland is a pragmatic, data driven strategy for the management and reuse of vacant properties in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. The initiative builds on the work began in the 2007 Re-Imagining a More Sustainable Cleveland study, which was led by nonprofit community development organization Neighborhood Progress, Inc. (NPI) and Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative.
