Neighbors near Garfield Park are hosting their second Better Block event to raise awareness for the need to revitalize the area of Shelby St. and Southern Ave. The project will show what the neighborhood could be like with renovations and care. The organizers will create pop-up businesses and restaurants, and amenities like bike lanes, cafe seating, safe cross walks, and medians to make residents hungry for change. The event will also give a sneak peek at the Garfield Park Eatery and Coffee Shop re-opening to happen later this year. The Garf will be back open for the day starting at breakfast time, for a taste of the new ownership and food.
This event is part of the larger Better Block effort world-wide to revitalize under-served neighborhoods and the effort to revitalize the southside of Indianapolis on the local level. Check out the family fun and see what could be the future of the Garfield Park neighborhood.
