For years, the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Grandview Street was the site of countless fish-fry fundraisers and barbecues for school groups and community organizations. Now, that site at 1295 N. Grandview St. has been transformed into a park dedicated to Community Leader Ruthie Watson.

Named after a community leader, Ruthie Watson Park is an open, passive space located at the southwest corner of Grandview Street and Lincoln Avenue. The park provides a centrally located community park and serves as a portion of the proposed Lincoln Avenue Trail (to be built in 2014).

The park acts as a gathering place to play checkers or take a stroll along the paved walkway which will feature pedestals honoring civic, religious, and other citizens who played a key role in the history of the neighborhood. The park also includes a bus shelter for Lake Xpress patrons, a drinking fountain, and restrooms.
