Whole Neighborhood Garden
1007 Bedford Avenue
Founded in 1990
Originally dedicated in 1990 by Mayor Dinkins as a Lots-For-Tots Playground called Family Affair Neighborhood Park, this garden was used as a playspace for many years by the Association for Black Social Workers daycare.
After the ABSW daycare closed, the space was underused until it was reborn as the Whole Neighborhood Garden and rebuilt as part of the 2013 Gardens for Healthy Communities program within the Mayor's Obesity Task Force Initiative.
