Friends of Lillian Cooper Shepherd Park

The mission of the Friends of Lillian Cooper Shepherd Park is to craft viable means of sustaining and upgrading Lillian Cooper Shepherd Park from a Block Park to a Neighborhood Park for long life and multi-generations

The goal of this grant project was to transform the local youth and young adult population into environmental community stewards. The community has been a victim of incidences of vandalism with evidence of stolen and abandon cars stripped and left in the park’s playground area. One avenue towards restoring this space is to reclaim youth and young adults towards the office of community environmental stewards and redirecting this population away from vandalism and destruction of this beloved space to serve as models of good stewardship and protectors of the community park.
