Tis’ the Season in Crispus Attucks Park

Crispus Attucks Development Corporation (CADC) wishes you a very Happy Holiday Season!

We have recently deck our halls – have you? It truly is a dazzling time of year in the Park!

Many thanks for all those who made the park look so beautiful early in December and just in time to create a little winter wonderland topped off with the sparkling lights. And a huge heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported our fundraising campaigns throughout the year – we cannot do this with you!

We are proud to say that in 2017 – it has been a very busy and productive year. New trees and flower beds were planted, new park signs were installed, and plans for the new retaining wall are underway to be completed in spring of 2018. There was the Taste of Bloomingdale, The ‘Bloomie Nights’ Music and Movies summer series as well as park beautification days. And, as you may have noticed more private events than ever.

Crispus Attucks Development Corporation (CADC) is an all-volunteer organization which owns and manages Crispus Attucks Park. CADC is governed by a Board of Directors  — who in conjunction with the neighbors, the volunteers and the sponsors maintain and support the park and all its programs throughout the year.

Our plans for 2018 are just beginning, let Crispus Attucks Park be part of your New Year resolutions to get involved in the neighborhood! Cheers to healthy and Happy New Year for everyone! And, as always Thank You!
