In 2006, a group of citizens banded together to form the Friends of Buckner Park in order to revitalize Buckner Park and make it a clean, safe place for the neighbors to gather. The Dallas Parks and Recreation Department agreed to dedicate funds and personnel to improve the park. In addition, Friends of Buckner Park obtained its 501(c)3 tax exemption status and will be raising money through grants and fundraisers as well as private and corporate donations and sponsors.

Concerned neighbors who are passionate can really make a change in his or her community. I am glad to see four neighborhoods working together on this project to make this change happen.
