East Harlem (El Barrio)

explore visiting   favorite add to favorites

Located in Manhattan's East Harlem neighborhood, this large and active space had suffered from a decade of neglect until the Disney Co. teamed up with NYRP and the local community in summer 2004 to transform the trash-filled lot into a green, multipurpose paradise.

Over the course of 11 workdays, 184 Disney VoluntEARS and 214 community volunteers gathered at the 15,000 sq. ft. site to clear debris, paint new fencing, create and mulch garden beds, haul dirt and lay sod, and plant trees and shrubs. These projects implemented a garden plan by landscape designer Billie Cohen that includes a flower garden and pergola, playground, and basketball court. This garden design was developed in lively, open discussions with surrounding neighborhood groups and community leaders.
