For Walking Wednesday this week, we headed south to Everett Park, which has seen a huge amount of improvement. Through a Love Your Block grant, the Lansing Soccer club, has improved the space and its functionality for their large youth soccer program. The improvements included upgrades to the grass, a newly painted shed, increased greenspace. They have hosted many workdays to remove trash and overgrown debris. Many neighbors have expressed their appreciation for the upgrades to the park and the work of the Lansing Soccer Club families.
After checking out the park, we ventured around the rest of the neighborhood. It was a very comfortable walk, especially on a warm summer day. The Old Everett Neighborhood is a cozy neighborhood that seems tucked away, far from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city. We got to look at all the unique houses, then ventured down to Poxson Park. All in all, a great time, and a chance to see one of Lansing’s great neighborhoods.
