Fort Greene Park Director looks back on 2018

Dear Fort Greene Park Community: Looking back, 2018, my fourth year as Fort Greene Park Director, was an incredible year of growth and expansion. Much of what we accomplished would not have been possible without the neighbors who care for and support the park. Our 2018 operations makeover coincided with the Community Heroes NYC photography installation along the Brooklyn Hospital fenceline that celebrates everyday residents who  organize and generously give time and talent for the good of the park and neighborhood.   Read more here: http://www.fortgreenepark.org/news/2018/12/13/looking-back-on-2018-a-letter-from-park-director-dave-barker
