Crispus Attucks Park is fully open to the public, but it is not a city park and receives NO money from the government. Crispus Attucks Park is operated and maintained by CADC, a non-profit organization made up entirely of volunteers and park neighbors.

100% of donated funds go directly to the protection, maintenance, upkeep and development of the park. Your support is critical to ensure Crispus Attucks Park remains an inviting green space for the entire community!

Can’t make the fundraiser, but still want to support Crispus Attucks Park?   Donate securely anytime on the website.

Hope to see you there!

Thank you!

Thank you so much for making the 13th Annual Bloomingdale Community Day in Crispus Attucks Park such a huge success! We enjoyed over 30 yard sale vendors, a dozen restaurants, great music, and great weather–the rain held off until 3pm.

Financially, we raised about half the funds to sustain the park for another year! (Who says 13 isn’t a lucky number?)
