Through a community-driven effort, the Bailey Park Neighborhood Development Corporation purchased several vacant lots that will become Bailey Park. Bailey Park will bring social, environmental and economic benefits to the McDougall-Hunt community. It will be the first community neighborhood gathering place that has been created in years and will have ample green space for community activities and events. Bailey Park will provide recreational opportunities for everyone from children to senior citizens; In June of 2019, we will break ground and build the play area for the park. In one day the neighborhood will gain an open, inclusive, and accessible play area for children of all abilities.
Bailey Park will add scenic beauty to the neighborhood. The master plan focuses on a space that will meet the needs of the community and fit into the actual physical space of the property outlining specific details and the overall physical attributes and dimensions of the park. Parks go beyond the grass, trees and recreation equipment they comprise. They become integral parts of people’s lives and an essential part of a community. They bind people together over their shared love of the outdoors and their desire to see the beauty in their neighborhoods—this is the vision of the Bailey Park Neighborhood Development Corporation and the McDougall Hunt Revitalization plan.
