Join Neighbors and Mayor Andy Schor to celebrate the Community Bridge Painting project

Last year, with support from LEAP and the Tri County Regional Planning Commission, artist Tracie Davis and dozens of neighborhood volunteers brought the bridge to life with a community mural celebrating the animals of Potter Park Zoo.  

The mural survived the February flood and has been finished and sealed.  Celebrate this community art project with a bridge dedication and ice cream party on Tuesday July 10th at 5:30 pm. Find event details HERE

Located just off the Lansing River Trial it's easily accessible by bike or walking.  If driving, parking is available at Sycamore Park.   

Thank you neighbors in Holmes Street School Neighborhood, Potter Walsh, Scott Woods, Clifford Park, Baker, Sycamore Park and students and staff from Mt. Hope STEAM school & so many more for making this happen!
