We believe that the larger community surrounding Garfield Park is best described as a neighborhood. A neighborhood is defined by the “people” who live near each other. It’s the people who participate in park happenings, Volunteer to plant tress and paint murals, fund raise for park preservation and stewardship, and people who advocate for Garfield Park by engaging the time and treasure of their local organizations.
The mission of the Garfield Park Neighbors Association is to provide a structure dedicated to the enhancement, viability and preservation of the neighborhood by continuously improving its physical characteristics, providing a social network, enhancing communication, partnering with Garfield Park and our business partners and publicizing the value of home ownership in our area.
This Quality of Life Plan engages 8 neighborhoods in south Indianapolis to develop a sustainable and equitable vision for improved quality of life and economic development. Boundaries include the neighborhoods of Garfield Park, Bean Creek, University Heights, Carson Heights, South Village, Meridian Raymond, Rosedale Hills, and Northwest Perry. Supported by: University of Indianapolis, Fifth Third Bank, LISC Indianapolis, and INHP.
Mission of the Alliance is to provide opportunities of social and economic redevelopment by building partnerships with all stakeholders within our community through events in our efforts to rediscover the Gateway to the South. In an effort to strengthen our wider community Garfield Park advocates align themselves with the efforts of the Gateway Community Alliance.
