The Conscious Connect Community Development Corporation | The Delaware Commons Park Project

$311,000 Project Budget | $75,000 Granted

Karlos L. Marshall, Executive Director, (937) 925-5160


The organization’s mission is to reimagine and redevelop underused spaces for the purpose of education, culture, health and peace so that zip codes do not define the success of children, youth and families. Funds will help revitalize the current park located on Delaware Avenue to promote the long-term health, well-being, social cohesion and neighborhood of more than 3,000 residents. Working at the intersections of equitable neighborhood investments, passive and active amenities and public health, the Delaware Commons Park project will include upgrades to all park amenities, including tables, benches and the park shelter, as well as the removal of blight and the addition of playscapes. This work will help transform the abandoned community space into a vibrant neighborhood asset.
