This project was created to recognize the importance of our parks. Artists photographed visitors to the park, talked with them and incorporated their brief story into the plaques.
Plaque text: What kind of football team was the 1991 West Side Bantams of Riverside Park? “They lost a lot of close ball games,” says Coach Ted Davis.
Despite losing, these 13-year-olds were serious about the game. Their offensive strategy was to run the ball to set up the pass. But Coach Davis had another strategy – “to teach the players the value of discipline and ot build their self confidence.”
The parks. They’re all about growing.
