When our chapter members voted to give back to our community through a pro bono design project, Director of Public Relations, Kelley Oklesson reached out to her contacts at Neighborhood Design Center.
NDC matched our group with a Baltimore neighborhood who wanted to renovate their historic park in time for their 50th anniversary in 2021, and our new project began.) Maybe not that brief, but something concise.
The Contee-Parago Traffic Island (or Triangle) is a small park with a fountain on Dolphin Street at the end of Bolton Street. It was named in honor of two Bolton Hill neighbors who lived on Dolphin street - William Gayles Contee and Edward Wilson Parago. The park was dedicated in May 1971.
The park was labeled a "triangle" instead of a "park" as city policy required that parks could not be named for a living person. Mr. Contee died in 1987. Mr Parago died in 1983.
"Dedicated to the spirit of neighborliness exemplified by William Gailes Contee and Edward Wilson Parago, May 1971"
