It’s yard sale time on Saturday, May 21, 2021 from 8 am to 2 pm! This year we are holding a Spring Yard Sale by request of some residents, to see if this is a more popular time. The deadline to sign up to participate is Saturday, May 13th. All neighborhood residents are invited to participate in hosting a sale in their own yard. The cost is $5.00, which helps pay for advertising (Herald-Leader, Facebook, Nextdoor, Craigslist), and signs and printing. Signs with participating house numbers will be placed at the end of each street on the day of the yard sale. Maps of participating households will be posted on social media. The sign up form will be distributed as printed flyers and will be available online in Mid April. Any questions can be emailed to kenwickneighbors@gmail.com.

Oh wow are we excited! We have reached and exceeded our $5,000 goal for completing the new basketball court in the Kenwick Community Park! We managed to raise $5,542.66 with 127 donations and an average donation of $43.64. In addition to these funds we obtained a matching NAMP grant for $6,800. We will be ordering and hand delivering the shirts and stickers in August. As of August 14th, the concrete and the new goal has been installed, we are just waiting on the lines to be painted. Remaining funds will be applied to our next phases of purchasing new amenities -- swings, picnic tables, native plantings, and trees -- so more of the neighborhood can enjoy the park. 

The Kenwick Neighborhood Association has been working hard to improve our local neighborhood park.  Based on your feedback, we are partnering with LFUCG to add more amenities -- swings, picnic tables, native plantings, and trees -- so more of the neighborhood can enjoy the park. 

The Kenwick Neighborhood will be holding a meeting on Tuesday, June 22 from 7 to 8 pm to discuss upcoming changes to the Kenwick Community Park, answer questions, and discuss options for the next phase of additions. This meeting will be held in the park on the corner of Owsley and Menifee Avenues.

Beginning soon, the old basketball court will be replaced with a regulation half court, and the new surface will be located to free up space for future improvements.

To complete this first phase, we have already received a matching NAMP (Neighborhood Action Matching Program) grant from LFUCG that will provide some funding for these improvements. Our current goal is to raise another $5,000 to help pay for the new basketball court and prepare for the next phase--adding the new amenities.  

Help us reach our goal! Donate $10 and get a sticker, $25 for a t- shirt, or $35 or over for both. Designs were created by Cricket Press! T-shirts and stickers will be delivered in August 2021.

Email kenwickneighbors@gmail.com for questions or call Sara at 859.221.8350.

The first half of the concrete will be poured soon. Photos from July 25th, 2021.

Stickers will be 3" x 2" vinyl and are durable & weatherproof.

The annual yard sale is being held this year on September 12th. Please join us for some outdoor fun and help keep everyone healthy by wearing your mask and keeping a distance where possible!
Due to the pandemic and the current statewide mandate, masks are required “while in outdoor public spaces in which a person cannot maintain a physical distance of 6 feet from an individual who is not in your household”. This applies to hosting a yard sale or visiting a yard sale! We will not be able to provide enforcement of this mandate, so please be kind and protect yourself and your neighbors. High-risk individuals may consider not attending, or proceeding with extra caution.
All neighborhood residents are invited to participate in hosting a sale in their own yard. The cost is $5.00, which helps pay for advertising (Herald Leader, Facebook, Nextdoor, Craigslist), and signs and printing. Signs with participating house numbers will be placed at the end of each street on the day of the yard sale. The deadline to participate is Monday, September 7th.
