Crispus Attucks Park is operated and maintained by CADC, a non-profit organization made up entirely of volunteers and park neighbors. Crispus Attucks Park is fully open to the public, but it is not a city park and receives NO money from the government. All maintenance and upkeep is paid for and performed entirely by the CADC Board and generous friends of the park. CADC exists solely on community support.

100% of donated funds go DIRECTLY to the protection, maintenance, upkeep and development of the park.  It costs roughly $10,000 each year—just to maintain the park—that does not include any additional projects or improvements.

Have fun, learn about getting involved with the park, and raise funds for an important community project!  We hope to see you there!

If you can’t make it but want to make a generous donation, you can do so securely on this website.
