In cooperation with the city of Jackson, Fondren Renaissance wrote and received a $588,000 HUD grant to build a park at the corner of Dunbar Street and Northview Avenue. This public/private partnership was a new initiative and was dedicated in 2011. Fondren Park has provided a green space that is used by churches, schools and neighborhood families.
Highlights of this state-of-the-art park include a walking/jogging trail, outdoor concert pavilion, playground equipment for all ages and a community garden complete with a rain barrel watering system.
Fondren Park was presented to the City of Jackson in August 2011.
