Park of Hope
On Saturday, more than 50 volunteers from LifeChurch.tv, Crossings Community Church and the WISH program at the University of Central Oklahoma will converge on Hope Crossing, Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity’s first-ever neighborhood of Habitat homes at NE 83 and Kelley.
The volunteers are to help assemble a 2.2- acre park in the neighborhood.
The new park area is to be named Brown Park and will include an all-purpose playing field with a baseball backstop, walking paths, exercise workout stations and trees. Picnic tables, benches, swings and a jungle are also be a part of the neighborhood park.
Habitat for Humanity leaders said the park is being funded through a $75,000 donation from the Brown family, Dr. William R. and Jane Brown; Steve and Dr. Becki Brown Seay; and H. Blanton Brown and Dr. Faith Phillips, in honor of their parents, Col. William Ray Brown Sr. and Helen Lincoln Brown.
Organizers said the Margaret Annis Boys Trust contributed $10,000 for the purchase of trees for the park.
They said the park will be a much-cherished addition to the new neighborhood, which is to become home to more than 200 families.
