More than 300 Citizens Energy Group employees are making improvements to the Brookside Park Family Center as part of Citizens’ 10th Sharing the Dream event, a multi-day community service project that gives employees a chance to serve Central Indiana and honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Brookside Park is a 108-acre municipal park on the near-eastside of Indianapolis, just north of the Rural-Sherman neighborhood. Park amenities include a swimming pool, family recreation center, tennis and basketball courts, fields, playgrounds, shelters and a disc golf course. Throughout the two-day service project, volunteers will spend time painting walls, installing new lighting, refurbishing the auditorium and stage, expanding the kitchen area, moving the reception desk to a more visible location and much, much more. Citizens is also currently doing work in the park as part of its Upper Pogue’s Run CSO project. As part of that initiative, we are making enhancements to the park’s grounds, including adding trees, extending a portion of Pogue’s Run Trail and restoring the disc golf course.
Sharing the Dream begins on January 10 and wraps up on January 11. On Monday, January 15, Indy Parks will reopen the Brookside Park Family Center for a community open house, giving residents a chance to tour the facility and see the improvements. Citizens employees will donate nearly 2,000 hours of volunteer time during Sharing the Dream. Citizens and its generous partners will donate nearly $900,000 either monetarily or in-kind.
