Our site


The Grandmother Park Initiative is 501(c)(3) corporation whose goal is to turn 1125 Dewey into a "tot lot" playground for young children and their caregivers. Grandmother Park Initiative has worked with several not-for-profits, including Openlands, the Evanston Parks Foundation and the Evanston Parks Coalition.

Openlands purchased the property at 1125 Dewey and is holding it for our organization while we raise money to purchase and develop the lot into a park. Prior to purchase by Openlands, the lot at 1125 Dewey contained a burnt out home that had gone into foreclosure. The property has since been demolished and is now open space.
