Next time you are at the corner of Walker and Elam Avenues, hop out of your car and pick up a Lindley Park Gazette. The kid-run community newspaper, with a circulation of about 300, is quite an impressive piece of journalism. They are about to publish their 12th issue. Issue eleven had fourteen, informative, well-written pages. News about Lindley Park Elementary and the children of the neighborhood always features prominently in the paper. The current issue has an article about Steve Cauthen's bat houses and how they have gone from having one bat in 2007 to 74 bats in 2012. Imagine a neighborhood gathering at night to count bats together!
Reading the Lindley Park Gazette makes it clear that this neighborhood, named for John Van Lindley, is a vibrant, desirable, multigenerational place to live. According to the gazette, the Lindley Park neighborhood had a big campout in May. We can't wait to see what they end up doing for the Fourth of July.
