SO-hi Community park has opened!

The vision started at EUMC

So-Hi (South of Highway 7) Park has opened! The opening ceremony took place on June 15, 2024. Now Excelsior residents living south of Highway 7 have a safe and ADA-accessible space to gather, play and get outside.

The vision for park was born when members at Excelsior United Methodist Church noticed that the church parking lot was frequently used by neighbors as a community gathering and play space. In support of our church's purpose of loving beyond ourselves, and of our mission of building community, serving others and standing for justice, the church agreed to dedicate space on our property for the development of a community park. Community groups have joined forces to fund the park. Their hard work during the past two years paid off with the wonderful play space we see today.

The park's board is continuing to raise funds to add a sun shade, benches, picnic tables, and a basketball court. For more information about the park and to donate to this important community-building project, see the So-Hi Community Park website:
