Chandler Park has been a great resource for the community especially during the pandemic. When COVID hit many people were able to walk around the park to see other people and enjoy nature. The pandemic was terrible in terms of preventing events and programming from happening, but the park itself was good for people to cope with being isolated. Something that I learned about Detroit while working with Chandler Park Conservancy is how people in the community are grateful for whatever resources they are given. My mentors at Chandler Park Conservancy always do their best to put on a quality event and programs and it is evident of how satisfied the community members are of the resources that are provided by the growing number of people that show out to their events through the years. It makes me happy to know that Chandler Park gives them what they need because while working on the east side I haven’t seen much that was within walking distance.
