Save Storer Park!

For far too long the only green space in the Stockyards neighborhood, Storer Park at W. 67th and Storer Ave. in Cleveland, OH has been neglected.  The playground equipment is over 30 years old, the baseball field has been decommissioned.

Yet, the residents still enjoy this 2 acre green space in one of the most densely populated areas of Cleveland.  We now have a young football team that practices there, new generations are bringing their children to play in the same place they played.

There is no problem with crime or drugs, the neighbors watch out for the park and residents who are there.

Now, the city is talking about selling part or all of the park to a manufacturing firm that is located near it, not adjacent to it.

We, the community, demand that the park not be sold and ask that our city upgrade the equipment at the playground and involve the community in planning upgrades to the park. We have already stated that we would help in fundraising, but are reluctant to do so until we have the assurance of city officials that the park will remain a park for current and future generations to enjoy.
