Gateway Green

Friends of Front Street Green

 

Chair: Khalid Ali

The Mission of The Friends of Front Street Green is to re-imagine the park on Front Street between Christian and Washington Streets to create a welcoming gateway into Queen Village.  Front Street Green will be an outdoor space with a covered center walkway. The site will be a “people park”, perfect for free events throughout the Spring and Summer such as: art exhibits, trade shoes, social activities, exercise classes, organic food markets, leisurely walks, and meeting and greeting friends and family.

Friends of Front Street Green and Queen Village Neighbors Association are pleased to announce that our Request for Proposal for a landscape architect is now live! We look forward to working with an individual and/or firm who will be a true partner and leave their unique mark on this community beautification initiative! Apply now! Please contact us at FrontStreetGreenFriends@gmail.com for additional details.
