For the 3,500 people living within a 10 minute-walk of Johnson Oak Park and Jettie S. Tisdale School, the open space offers the only close-to-home connection to the outdoors. The park is used by Tisdale students and neighbors alike.

The Trust for Public Land used a participatory design process to gather input from Tisdale students and East End community members on how to improve the park.

Construction began in late spring 2018. Once complete, the renovated park and playground will feature new opportunities for exercise and play, an outdoor classroom, grills and tables, a splash pad, and green infrastructure elements that will capture stormwater.
