Overview

In 1971, this vacant lot was a dumping ground for garbage and an illegal parking lot. The 200 Bergen Street Block Association organized local residents to clean up the site and create a neighborhood vest pocket park, which at first consisted of a modest vegetable garden. In 1980, working with the Magnolia Tree Earth Center of Bedford Stuyvesant, the association and residents created the garden current landscaped design. The garden was transformed into a beautiful flower garden and woodland area by neighborhood resident David Foulke who has passed on. Community and block residents continue to carry on the legacy.
