About Catalpa Park

The park site was formed with the 1996 purchase of three residential properties totaling 6.5 acres. The properties were managed as rental units until development funding was allocated in 2000. Catalpa Park was dedicated on August 13, 2002. 

Adopt-A-Park

The Adopt-A-Park program gives churches, civic organizations, local businesses, and other community groups the opportunity to adopt their neighborhood park. Adopting groups will commit to maintaining their park for a renewable one-year term, helping with things such as eradicating graffiti, picking up litter, filling mutt-mitt dispensers, painting site amenities, raking leaves, and mulching trees and planting beds. In exchange, the Department recognizes the group as the adopting agency via our website and signage at the park.
