Neighbors Help Sunken Gardens Project Secure Hitchcock Grant

When the Omaha Sunken Gardens Project asked, the neighborhood answered.
In response to a recent mailing, more than 100 members of the Dundee-Memorial Park Neighborhood Association and its board pledged $26,905.00 that helped the project team secure the $75,000 matching grant from the Gilbert M. and Martha H. Hitchcock Foundation.
The team is currently raising funds to restore the historic sunken gardens along Happy Hollow Boulevard and create a safe community green space that welcomes active, informal use.
“We can’t say enough about the neighborhood’s support of this project,” said team lead Matt Dwyer. “It’s really pushing us toward the finish line.”
More than $880,000 has been raised to date, and the effort to secure new pledges continues. The total project cost is $1,600,000, which includes establishing an endowment for future maintenance of the gardens.
Dwyer said the project team is also working on new ways to connect with neighbors throughout the duration of the fundraising campaign and during the construction phase.
You can follow the project’s progress at www.omahasunkengardens.org and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/omahasunkengardens.
