Lower Union Park Playground
The Syracuse Parks Conservancy was happy to be the fiscal sponsor for this project; the SPC is here to assist and help groups write grants and request funding for specific projects. We would like to thank all the groups and individual people who came though with funding to help see this project get done, especially the Jim and Julie Boeheim Foundation, the Allyn Foundation, Gifford Foundation, Community Foundation, Trades unions, Kaboom!, and all the Northside groups who came together to see the kids have a new playground in their neighborhood. Dick Case’s column in the Post-Standard helped raise funds too.
We would like to thank Glen Lewis from the Parks Department, and Commissioner Baye Muhammad for all their help. And we say thank you to Maureen Dore who was the driving force behind this project. We look forward to working on future projects with the Parks Department and making our Parks all they can be. And to all the public who gave of their time and money: “many thanks.”
