WHAT’S GOOD? at Randolph Park

Parks and Recreation is partnering with a local artist for the WHAT’s GOOD? creative place making project in Randolph Park. WHAT’S GOOD? asks neighborhood residents to “re-”experience their community through interactive murals, storytelling place makers and gatherings. It aims to build meaningful relationships, a stronger community and change. WHAT’S GOOD? is made possible by a Creative Community Grant from the Center for Great Neighborhoods. The project takes place from August 1-6 at Randolph Park.
