Beginning in March 2007, the Mordecai Parks Committee in conjunction with our
CAC worked with the City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation
department to plan and renovate the long outdated Mordecai Mini Park.
This small neighborhood park is located at the corner of Blount and Poplar Streets,
adjacent to Hope Elementary School.
Extensive renovations were undertaken, including
the construction of a new toddler play area, new sidewalks, entry
area, and fencing, new picnic decks and tables, and new GameTime play
equipment. Some old equipment was refurbished, and the park was graded and finished with new sand, mulch, and retaining walls.
This work is now complete, and after our community volunteer day on April 19, 2008 the park was
finished and ready for our neighborhood children to enjoy.
