SAVE BANNON PARK! Bannon Park, located in Farley Square has served as the center of the North End and Black American Community in Portsmouth, OH since 1915. The green space in the park is utilized by the residents, youth, and children in the community for activities such as cook outs, birthday parties, soccer, kickball, and softball. Many community organizations utilize the space as well: Beulah Baptist Church, The Northend Super Reunion, The 14th Street Community Center, Wings of Hope, Watch Me Grow, and the North End Ministerial Alliance. It is used for church services, Global Youth Service Day, National Night Out, Abhor Day, and many more community celebrations. The youth of Wings of Hope were currently in the process of fundraising to make the area more appealing for the youth to play. We are demanding that our youth and community retain this space that is so essential to the community, especially in a community that we are determined to reclaim for the better. Are kids and community deserve a safe space to play and celebrate, we feel it is imperative for this generation and the next as it has been for many generations before ours. Please sign the petition to let the City of Portsmouth and the State of Ohio know that we shall not be moved!
