The fundraising campaign for decorative pavers at the entrance of Mifflin Square Park is now Live! This fundraiser arose following several neighborhood park advisory meetings where this was highlighted as a real priority improvement focus for neighborhood residents and stakeholders. In line with this shared community vision, this fundraiser presents the opportunity to mark a distinctive entrance to Mifflin Square Park and to preserve the names of the dedicated neighborhood residents and organizations who have done so much in the park planning process and in the many years before.

This campaign will be active until Monday, April 22, 2019 and the goal is to raise $10,000. Individuals who donate $200 or above will be able to have their name engraved at the park entrance as part of these pavers. Organizations are also welcome to contribute and have their name engraved as we know countless organization been a part of improving Mifflin Square Park. If an organization wants to make a collective donation from several individuals on behalf of the organization, we certainly encourage that.

On Friday mornings, students from Key Elementary School come help tend Mifflin Square Park’s Gathering Garden by watering the plants and raking the leaves surrounding the garden. It has been a really enjoyable experience and the students learned how to correctly water, plant, and tend to the garden. Students expressed their desires  to continue tending the flowers and plants located around the park.
