Boss Park is located in the City of Akron, within the University Park neighborhood which has limited public park space for community residents. University of Akron and Akron Public Schools staff have identified increasing public park space as significant benefit to the community and the well-being of the faculty, staff and students who attend school in the neighborhood to create a new safe public park space. Prior to this revitalization effort, the park was a nuisance and safety concern for the community, attracting illegal dumping, broken glass, loitering, rodents and overgrown grass that reduced the curb appeal and safety of the entire neighborhood. The Boss Park transformation is a multi-year project that began in 2017 and has undergone clean up, painting, landscaping, clearing invasive vegetation, removal of dead trees, litter and glass removal, grade remediation, and soil testing for the next phase, which is the installation of a community garden through soil building and natural irrigation to support the garden planning and planting phase of the work.

No purchase is necessary; and voting ends June 25, 2021.
