LITTLE ROCK, AR- With Spring in full swing, a group of volunteers are calling on youth to get involved in a manhole mural project at hindman park.

The Meadowcliff/Brookwood Neighborhood Association adopted the park several years ago, and they've been working to revitalize it.

One of the ways they're doing that is teaming up with organizations and youth programs like UALR's Children International to paint murals on manholes seen throughout the park. The murals depict the park's history and what it's all about.

In addition to clean up efforts at the park, the mural project is one of many ways it's helping deter crime.

"There's no more graffiti. There's no more damage. People know that we won't put up for it, and the bad element is somewhere else, not here." Norm Berner, Meadowcliff/Brookwood Neighborhood Association.
There are many more manhole covers that need murals. If you'd like to help out, you can send an email to Norm Berner at or call (501) 454-3456
