The second event for the Rose Park Neighborhood Alleyway Improvement Project was held on Saturday, June 26th from 4pm to 6pm in the alleyway between Temple and Ohio and 7th and 6th Street. The event included Roses for Rose Park, Rose Park Brewing, music, arts and crafts, succulent plants, alleyway improvement surveys, prize raffles, popcorn, refreshing mocktails and a visit from Councilmember Cindy Allen and Policy Director Rahul Sen.

Rose Park Resident and Board Member, Esmeralda Garcia hosts an arts and crafts table for attendees to make their own musical instrument.

Special thanks to attendees, our wonderful volunteers, and to America Walks for the Community Change Grant that aims to gather feedback from residents regarding their needs and ideas for improving our neighborhood alleyways! Community Change Grants support local, grassroots efforts to create safe, accessible, and enjoyable places to walk and be physically active for all community members.

The 50 surveys we received from this event indicated the top 3 preferences for alleyway improvement:

  1. Paving
  2. Art
  3. Lighting
