This city of Dayton park was established in 1998 as part of the development of the Wright Dunbar Village. Located at 700 Anderson-Goodrich Court, neighborhood association president Jeff Jackson explained that “in the last year the neighborhood lead a $10,000 renovation that included refreshed landscaping and this new sign.”
Funded in part by a Make Montgomery County grant, donations from the area businesses and residents made up the rest. The new cooper signage was installed just yesterday.
The park is named after Paul Laurence Dunbar’s first published book of poetry and the neighborhood residents have hosted several outdoor concerts featuring jazz, classic rock and R & B music, as well as spoken word poetry and even a neighborhood garage sale.
