Our most recent inspiring neighbors are from the Lindenwood/Barraud Park/Cottage Heights Civic League. Recognizing that a small neighborhood park was unknown to many and under-utilized, residents and the civic league partnered with Keep Norfolk Beautiful and Neighborhood Engagement to spruce up the park with color, art, and a good clean up. The park is now much more inviting thanks to inspiring neighbors!
