NEN Awards: Help McLaren Park Wins Award

McLaren Park Playground groundbreaking ceremony

The Neighborhood Empowerment Network’s NEN Awards are returning for their fifth and biggest year on January 9. Produced in partnership with the CCSF Community Challenge Grant Program, The NEN Awards are dedicated to elevating and celebrating the tremendous work that residents and organizations do every day to make our city a great place to live.

This year, the community group Help McLaren Park will accept the Outstanding Park Group award for their advocacy of McLaren Park.

On Saturday, December 15, the Department joined the community group to help break ground on a new playground at the park’s Peru Street entrance, a project the group spearheaded and which is being funded by the Community Opportunity Fund, a program of the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond.

Congratulations, Help McLaren Park!
