German Park, located at the corner of Whitelock St. and Linden Ave. (8/22/12)
The most common story you hear about German Park when you talk with long-time residents has always been: "I grew up playing on German Park...and I have the scars to prove it!"
The next generation of Reservoir Hill kids will have to come up with another story. Because in summer 2001 neighbors built a community-designed playground and most recently, in fall 2012, neighbors transformed the rest of what was once a concrete oasis into an actual grass lawn. So, not only will German Park now have a place for rainwater to absorb, but families will have a place for movie nights, ball games, and all the other activities that grass makes a whole lot better.
