Nicetown CDC

Nicetown CDC plans to use an empty, 3-acre right of way beneath the elevated Roosevelt Boulevard to make the neighborhood more walkable, active, and fun. The Collaborative's conceptual plan lays out a versatile community sports court with basketball courts, a soccer field, a skate park, rain gardens, a public green, and a plaza for food trucks and seasonal farm stands.
