We Love Tompkinsville Park: Health + Wellness, an event bringing together community partners to heal the park with music, health, wellness and culture.
 
Tompkinsville Park has been the topic of many discussions as Staten Island’s North Shore continues to develop. Tompkinsville is a unique neighborhood filled with cultural destinations, food and businesses. For years, Tompkinsville Park has been plagued with drug use and homelessness often resulting in overdoses and deaths. For the last three years, Island Voice in partnership with local organizations, schools and communities has worked and advocated for positive programming and events that will help change the stigma and reality of this park. It is time to work together to heal this park, a community effort; WE LOVE TOMPKINSVILLE PARK is a call to action.
