More than six years of fighting for better signage, lighting, and a community space for all to enjoy came to fruition on July 13 with the grand opening of Darley Park’s Gateway Park. Attended by more than 50 neighborhood leaders, elected officials, and those who helped beautify the space and build the park, the grand opening included DJ Huxtable, dancing, a cookout, and remarks by happy residents and proud leaders alike.
