History

OMP started in the Bronx by daily park users of diverse cultural and economic backgrounds sitting around the “circle of friends” benches at 204th Street on East Mosholu Parkway South. In the company talked about current events, weather, the good old days, and the demographic and usage changes on Mosholu Parkway that were affecting the physical landscape. A natural, informal union developed and word spread around. A positive reaction came from members of the Community Board, neighborhood associations, and members of a large community garden. With these supporters and the unity of the surrounding communities of Norwood, Mosholu, Bedford, and Jerome; the parklands surrounding the Parkway have improved the quality of life for community residents, those that visit the area now, and who will visit in the future.
