Westwood Playground

The Westwood Community has a strong and rich history that was founded by “hard working progressive descendants of former enslaved and freed persons”*, in 1870. We want to preserve our rich history and culture with beautification efforts, as well as, organizational and leadership mentoring. and we want to bring our community and playground back to its original glory. The purpose of our partner group is to collaborate and partner with the City of Richmond’s Department of Parks and Recreation and Department of Public Works and the Chesapeake Bank to beautify our community and playground.
