Parchester Park Getting a Makeover

Over 200 people came together on a drizzly day in October to rebuild Parchester Park from the ground up in Richmond, CA. They built all the play equipment, painted games on the pavement, planted trees and more. All in one day! As part of that project each volunteer made a clay tile that has become part of this mosaic mural. A true labor of love and commitment, the mural will be installed on the outside of the park's community center facing the new playground. The mosaic represents the community of Parchester neighborhood and Richmond, empowered and united together, radiating out and making a difference in the world; plus celebration, life, love, diversity and more. We are slated to install tomorrow but it is supposed to rain!

Mosaic designed and led by Rachel Rodi. Huge thanks to production assistants: Carol Bevilacqua, Mark Tabler, Jen ODonnell, Denise Hart and Guy Fuerte! Project spearheaded by the City of Richmond and The Trust for Public Land.
