About the Project

Patti’s Point, located at the intersection of Mountain Avenue and Parkwood Road, is one of three gateways pointing to the Hilltop. Perennials were planted to reduce erosion and beautify the intersection.

“We have nothing to draw people here. We have no grocery store, school, our bus route was cut. I think we need something to draw people back into the neighborhood.”

— Patti Stewart – ReClaim South Ambassador, St. Clair
