Near South Neighborhood Parks Project

Over 20 years ago, the Near South Neighborhood Association (NSNA) led the effort to build Near South Park at 19th and A Street and donated it to the City.  The improvements at Breta Park, the island space on A Street between 19th and 20th Street predates the creation of Near South Park.  These areas are in desperate need of some attention. 

NSNA, the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department and the Lincoln Parks Foundation are partnering together to make improvements to these areas.  The total cost of the proposed improvements and an endowment to care for these two spaces is $36,963.00.  The great news is we have received commitments of $11,000 from the Parks Department and $5000 from NSNA.  That leaves $20,963.00 to make this project happen!

We need all funds paid and/or pledged to begin this project.  Our goal is to raise the funds by July 1, 2016. Please consider making a donation to restore these two areas to their historic beauty!
