The Rockford Park District, City of Rockford, and Winnebago County Housing Authority invite members of the media and neighborhood residents to attend a presentation on neighborhood survey results and learn about improvements that have been (or will be) made in the Washington Park neighborhood as a result of the survey.

Refreshments will be provided; child care will also be provided with activities and refreshments for children ages 3-10 (must be toilet trained).
