Our neighborhood remains a collection of quiet, tree-lined streets

where the front porch is still used for visiting with neighbors.


OWD Pocket Garden Project

The neighborhood association is excited to be creating a new garden space in the vacant lot next to Locopops and across from Cocoa Cinnamon. Learn More

We met our goal of $3000!
Thanks to all the neighbors and businesses who donated.
A big thanks to Linton Architects for the $1,000 match and to Cocoa Cinnamon and Inhabit Realty for the generous donations.

Stay tuned for more garden updates.
Also, if you have a green thumb, we'll be asking for plant donations early-mid Spring.
