Ganthers Place was officially established in 2003. We hit the ground running and haven't stopped since! Our mission was simple, to clean up our streets (both literally and figuratively) to allow residents to enjoy a safer neighborhood. Together, in partnership with our long time residents, we've successfully done this and so much more.
The Ganthers Place Park for All People, dedicated in 2008 and located at 566 Reinhard, is now a beautiful gathering place for residents, their pets, their friends and family.
The Green ‘N Things Park, dedicated in 2011 and located at 573 Whittier, is now a functional gathering space where residents can work, grow, and nourish both the gardens and themselves. Residents in Ganthers Place have access to tomatoes, radishes, squash, strawberries, onions, lettuce, and many other vegetables. Residents are not only receiving vegetables, but they are learning how to grow and maintain their section of the garden. Residents bring their friends and family to our parks for festivals, food, relaxation, and education. Our vibrant parks bring new residents, visitors, business partners, and other neighborhoods to Ganthers Place.
Community Grounds is your third park in Ganthers Place. Located at 642 Siebert, it features a fenced in green space and many picnic tables to relax and share a moment with family and friends. Dedicated in 2014 as the location of the wedding of the property owners, and a gift to the neighborhood!
Our many annual events provide regular opportunities for fellowship. Annual community events such as our Egg Hunt, Earth Day, Harvest Festival, Garden Tour, Beggars Night, Trunk or Treat, and Lighting of the Luminaries have served the sustainability of resident engagement. Resident engagement battles complacency and cultivates the foundation of a safe and happy community. We look back at pictures from our humble beginnings, and can't help but swell with pride over all that we've accomplished.
We are a community. We are proud. We are Ganthers Place.
