About People's Park

People’s Park is a multi-use, exterior event space that connects to The Exchange House and The Maker House that was created to be an inviting location for members of the community to host anything from personal meetings to public festivals. It was initially a backyard and parking lot that neighbors would pass through to get to the grocery store. After planning and strategic community investments, it quickly became a destination to be enjoyed by all.

One Community, Many Cultures.
