Up to $10M coming to Irishtown Bend Park

If enough funding can be found, Irishtown Bend Park would line the east
edge of West 25th Street in Ohio City, north of the Riverview Towers
Apartments toward the Detroit-Superior Bridge seen in the distance.
If a challenge grant announced today is matched by 2024, half of
the funding will be in place to start building the park (Plural).

In a project beset with hurdles — primarily centered around money — the effort to move forward on developing the 23-acre Irishtown Bend Park in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood got a big financial boost today. That boost came from a $5 million challenge grant from the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation. If enough donations are received by the end of 2024 to match the challenge dollar-for-dollar, it could generate up to $10 million.
