The First Ward Park is going to attempt to become even greater than the now famous Romare Bearden park (although FWP will be only 4 acres, compared to RBP’s 5).
The reason many think this park will become the city’s favorite, is due to the development that will soon circle it. The park’s developer, Levine Properties, is now planning dozens of new buildings around the park, including new luxury apartments, urban offices, new shops, and hotels.
“This revitalization will restore its diverse culture by giving people a place to live, work, and play together…” Levine’s site states.
