LaPointe Park Redesign

LaPointe Park sits on a small piece of unbuildable land owned by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District and leased by NeighborSpace. It was one of the very first NeighborSpace gardens and has been an open community space since the neighborhood was first developed circa 1914. It has been maintained by the owners of neighboring houses and by the Ravenswood Manor Improvement Association (RMIA).

In recent years, issues with standing water have minimized the park's functionality, and the RMIA decided to devote funds to a redesign project. During the 2017-2018 year, a LaPointe Park committee worked with neighbors to create a low-maintenance plan for the park that resolves current issues while still allowing room for small children and families to play. We are happy to have partnered with local landscape architect, Ted Wolff, and landscaping company, Christy Webber, to break ground on the redesign in Spring of 2019.
