CIVIC PARK CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION
Heritage, Healing & Hope
The historic Civic Park Neighborhood of Flint is celebrating its 100th year anniversary in 2019. All throughout the year events will be scheduled to highlight both the past and the future of the historic neighborhood. Celebrations will be held with our many partners and visitors across the country
The URC, is joining with groups from Civic Park as well as local and national partners to think creatively about the events and activities that will be included in the Centennial Celebration. Visit us often to see what is going on in Civic park all 2019.
Completed in 1919, Civic Park was one of the last large-scale planned communities for industrial workers in the United States. After a decade of public discussion on housing problems in Flint, local leaders began this neighborhood exclusively for industrial workers in 1916.
There are a number of opportunities to get involved in the Centennial. We always need volunteers for day-long events and weekend service projects. We are also in need of sponsors for many of the events and projects we have planned.
