The transformation of the plaza just outside the south-east corner of Prospect Park from a dilapidated, barren, concrete area into a social green space, encouraging both human interaction, and an appreciation of nature.  The increased greenery and usable open space, combined with periodic performances and a farmer's market, is helping to strengthen community identity and participation.
