Many thanks, Katie. This is our newest neighborhood park. I'm very pleased to know of Alice Ball and glad our park honors her. Willa-Willa likes running in the grass!


Wow, thanks for the history article. Good for Dr. Hollmann, and Arthur L. Dean was a dick.

Can you go onto the grass now?


My 10 year old daughter lead the neighborhood effort to have the park named after Alice Ball. She was thrilled the City took her suggestion but disappointed that no plaque or other information about her is currently in the Park. Thanks for helping to get the word out about her. For those interested, here a link the video my daughter made as part of the campaign that shares more about her life and work.


@4 just the name, nothing about her? That's too bad. I wonder if they'd be open to adding one. Your daughter rocks.

Please wait...
