Summary

The Wolcott and Lloyd site has been a Greenspace site for more than 10 years. This formerly vacant lot has been used as a dumping ground and even the turf of the Latin Kings gang. The efforts of 4 different groups of residents over the past 10 years have gradually reclaimed the site as a Community Greenspace. For the past two years, the intensive work of very committed participants such as Gwen and Deatra have transformed the Wolcott and Lloyd area into an attractive and inviting place for community members to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
