Lauderhill’s Mayor and Commission to Hold a Ribbon Cutting and Park Dedication - James D. Bradley, Jr. Park
On June 30, 2014, a Resolution was passed by the City of Lauderhill’s Mayor and Commission to name a parcel of undeveloped park land in the West Ken Lark Community after a longtime Community Activist – then President of the West Ken Lark Homeowners’ Association James D. Bradley, Jr.
The four acre parcel of land located at 3100 NW 16 Street on the west side of NW 31 Avenue was pursued by President Bradley with hopes of it becoming a park for the residents of his community to enjoy. City leaders agreed and sought Community Development Block Grant and Land Preservation Bond dollars for the land acquisition as well as enhancements.
Vice Mayor Hayward J. Benson, Jr., sponsored the resolution to name the park after Mr. Bradley explained, “Mr. Bradley was an extraordinary man. He served his community ardently and never took no for an answer. So many people benefited from his perseverance. Creating a park in his honor is a small token we can offer for a man who provided leadership to a community he revered.”
The Ribbon Cutting and Dedication of the James D. Bradley, Jr. Park is going to be on Thursday, December 4 at 3:30 pm. The park is located at 3100 NW 16 Street.
After the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Dedication, refreshments will be served at Fortunes Bar and Grill located at 1451 NW 31 Avenue.
