Hank Gathers Recreation Center at 25th and Diamond is an important community resource known for its numerous after-school and summer programs, bustling public pool, and competitive basketball games. But with 4,000 nearby residents depending on its facilities for outdoor enjoyment, this gathering place was in need of more green space and other improvements.

After completing a community-driven design process in 2014, The Trust for Public Land began construction on these improvements, incorporating exciting new play equipment, a spray ground, a short walking path, and picnic tables with shaded seating for watching the action or relaxing.
