Westside Infrastructure Project

Westmoreland Park

The Westmoreland School was created in late 1800 as African American public school to served children in the neighborhood. After it closed, it was re-purposed as CIC Head Start and the surrounding land served as a public space. This large swath of green space, which sits in the heart of the community, could increase opportunities for safe recreation, arts, events, social connections, and daily community life. The park planning phase happened in 2017, and implementation of those plans could reactivate the space for Danville residents, especially those who live in Westside.
