TNP Seeks Donations for Green Space Project in Warren

WARREN, Ohio – Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership is asking for donations for its green space project at Riverside Park.

TNP received a grant through AARP’s Community Challenge to turn the space into a usable green space after the demolition of the former St. Joseph Riverside Hospital. The goal of the project is to create a recreational space, with an emphasis on older adult usability. 

The project will include a walking path, benches, picnic tables, pollinator garden and trees. TNP is seeking donations to add more trees to the site. 

“We are grateful to AARP for the opportunity to reclaim this site as greenspace, and we are turning to the community to enhance the current site plan by adding more trees,” said Lydia Walls, project coordinator.

Residents and groups can adopt a bench or tree that will be placed in Riverside Park. The tree donation is $75, and the donor will have the opportunity to plant their tree next month. TNP and Plant Ahead Ohio will host a community tree planting event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 7 at Riverside Park. Supplies will be provided.

Larger sponsor opportunities are also welcomed.

For questions and donation information, contact Lydia Lynch at or 330 647 6301, ext. 8.
