Shields-Reid Park Renovation: $8,000,000
The Shields-Reid Park Renovation includes the construction of a new children’s play area, bike pump track, stage and performance area, fitness zone, public art, habitat garden, tree shade area throughout the park, and lighting and fencing throughout the park.
Shields-Reid Park, located in the heart of North Richmond in the Shields-Reid neighborhood, was selected based on community priorities to improve safety, activate the park, and preserve cultural history. Through a series of seven in-person and online meetings held in 2020, over 200 North Richmond residents and stakeholders envisioned their dream park.
