W.C. Reed Park Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Mayor Frank G. Jackson was joined by Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, Councilman Tony Brancatelli, Councilwoman Jasmin Santana, Director of Public Works Michael Cox and several community members to help rededicate WC Reed Park.

The city invested $1 million in the park for new playground equipment, a ball field, a basketball court, sidewalks, a paved parking lot and newly seeded grass; the EPA spent approximately $6.1 million for the project with $3.9 million related to cleanup activities within the park.

“We found environmental issues that needed to be corrected, not only in the park, but in the surrounding areas, and we invested funds to bring it up to what it should be,” said Mayor Jackson. “This park is just one of the things that make this neighborhood a neighborhood of choice –one where where people want to live, work, play and do business.”-More
