Next Community Opportunity Fund Workshops Starting! – Please note updated times…

Are you a group or individual with an idea for how to improve your neighborhood park? Apply for a Community Opportunity Fund (COF) project and help make a difference in your community.

As part of the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond, the Department’s COF program is a $6 million capital program that encourages residents, neighborhood groups and park advocates to propose capital projects that will improve their local parks, e.g., the installation or replacement of playgrounds, paths, benches, drinking fountains or sports courts.
