MILWAUKEE -- Some big changes have been made to a park on Milwaukee's north side, and now it has been nominated for an award.

Moody Park is a Milwaukee County park, located at 19th and Burleigh.

On Wednesday, March 9th, it was nominated for a Milwaukee Awards for Neighborhood Development award.

The nomination came after a $2 million revitalization plan that was completed in late 2015.

It was a collaboration between Milwaukee County officials and community groups.

"Crime is down. People are going to be so happy this summer because their kids can go and come to this park and play and have a wonderful time, so it was long overdue," Arlene Patterson with Amani United said.

Some of the changes made to the park include a new community building, a splash pad, shaded seating, three basketball courts, a multi-gym exercise structure, open space for sports practices, walking paths and a multi-use, open-air shelter.

    It will look the same after 1 month. F**k the north side. Fence it off and let them fend for themselves. Cut off food and water. Nobody there deserves it any more. This is a true waste of money even more than the street car.

      What about the hard working people on that side of town. Don’t they get the chance to see there tax money doing something for their community .
