Ground broken for Historic Fulton Memorial Park

Mark Robinson of the RTD was at the groundbreaking for the Historic Fulton Memorial Park, in the works since at least 2013:

“Jones and others with ties to the historic community have worked for nearly a decade to build a park memorializing 850 homes demolished and mostly Black families scattered in the 1970s under the guise of urban renewal.

About 40 people came together to celebrate at the site of the future Historic Fulton Memorial Park at 5001 Williamsburg Ave. The plot is at the foot of a steep slope leading up to Powhatan Hill Park.”
