Turns out that if you let the community transform a space, they’ll do it with gusto! Over 1,000 people came out to Lincoln Park Meet on the Street yesterday, Sunday July 13. For a few hours, 3rd St. between 24th and 27th Avenues West was a new community center–a space where you could get to know your neighbors, play some games, enjoy storytime under the trees, cover the asphalt with chalk art, meet Laverne the Lake Superior Zoo chinchilla and her creepy-crawly buddies, and much more.
