Virginia Park Community Lot

My neighbors and I plan to create a native butterfly meadow with educational opportunities for neighborhood youth and accessible seating arrangements so that folks can relax, gather and enjoy the beautiful, environmentally-friendly amenity. The butterfly meadow will take over one to two lots, while the third lot will be primarily used for seating and community gathering.
