Greenwood Park chosen as ÔHeart Your ParkÕ recipient
Submitted By Laura Correa-Hernandez
The Hayward Area Recreation and Park District (H.A.R.D.) is excited to announce that Greenwood Park has been chosen as one of 550 parks across the country to participate in the MacyÕs Heart Your Park program. During the month of March, customers at MacyÕs Southland Mall can donate $1 or more at the register, with 100 percent of the donations benefiting Greenwood Park. To further spread the love, MacyÕs will match the total customer donation across all stores, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000 in total. MacyÕs customers do not have to make a purchase to donate and donations are tax deductible.
In partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), this program is part of MacyÕs ÒSecret GardenÓ campaign, which aims to raise awareness and dollars for local parks across the country. Donations will go toward making improvements, such as maintaining trails, playgrounds, and basketball courts, and everything in between.
Located at the corner of Eden and Middle Lane, Greenwood Park is near Southland Mall. The park was built in the mid 1980Õs and currently has a play area, basketball court, picnic tables, walking path and open lawn area. In anticipation of additional population in the area, H.A.R.D. and the City of Hayward collaborated on the three acre expansion and renovation of the park which is expected to be completed in 2014.
ÒHeart Your ParkÓ is part of MacyÕs ÒSecret GardenÓ spring campaign that will come to life at MacyÕs stores and on macys.com with an infusion of garden-inspired merchandise, special promotions and events.
