Brandywine Village Park

Brandywine Village Park was a collaborative effort to build two safe green sanctuaries in Wilmington, DE.   A coordinated partnership between significantly diverse community groups, nonprofits, city, state and federal bureaucracy was established for funding and construction. 

Inner city row houses were demolished and removed for site preparation and park installation. 

Our overarching, social justice goal was creating a drug free, safe, green space for neighborhood residents and their families.
