North Willow Glen History Part 15 of 15: The 2010s

Coming out of the burst housing bubble of end of the previous decade, a number of homes fall into the hands of banks and are slowly sold off as lines of credit are restored. Though still less than four years into this decade, a number of homes have been noticeably transformed through upgrades as ownership has turned over. Neighbors can be found congregating in small groups on Sundays exchanging the bounty of their gardens at the Produce Share in Hummingbird Park or en masse at summer's end for the Party in the Park at the same venue. Winter brings the Holiday Party and the Decoration Contest with prizes donated by local businesses and Spring starts the cycle anew with the Garage Sale.

Leading up to the September 21st Willow Glen Founders Day Parade on Lincoln Avenue, NWGNA is providing readers with history about the evolution of our neighborhood, largely excerpted from Ken Ecklund's North Willow Glen Neighborhood Association Page.

We view this as our history and encourage you to share. Stories and photos of North Willow Glen are very welcome and with your permission and credit we would like to archive this information to improve our understanding of life in our neighborhood throughout the years.
