You may be surprised how such a collaboration can help revitalize your community. Take a look at how residents of The Oaks neighborhood in southernmost Garland partnered with the Office of Neighborhood Vitality (ONV), creating art to highlight their area’s beautiful pond and green space. The work was done as part of the Where the Heart Is neighborhood revitalization program.
Garland artist Cullin Lassiter designed an aquatic-themed mural and coordinating artwork for Ablon Park, Oaks Branch Greenbelt and walking paths throughout The Oaks Neighborhood.
Residents began meeting with ONV regularly in September to discuss physical and social improvements within their community. They wanted to strengthen neighborhood pride, prevent litter and encourage fellow residents to enjoy walking in their neighborhood.
When social restrictions are lifted, the project will be completed with a volunteer workday, where residents will work together in other beautification projects throughout the neighborhood.
