Community Engagement at Maxwell Park

Working with Oakland’s Parks and Recreation Department, JETT led the first of two Community Engagement Meetings at Maxwell Park on June 8, 2019, where over 30 parents, children, and community members engaged in a vibrant discussion regarding planned improvements to this well-loved neighborhood park.

We were reminded of how important these public open spaces are to community-building, a neighborhood’s identity, and the bond people have with each other, nature, and the place they live. It is a privilege to work with the Maxwell Park Community to foster these bonds to create a place they will enjoy for many years to come.
