About Us

Byrd Park focuses on activities and events at the neighborhood level, and on larger events with direct impact on our community.

Help us out!

Byrd Park is not a newspaper or magazine. We are a neighborhood news blog, a grass-roots publication with no staff reporters or editors. We are dependent on readers and contributors for all of our content.

This is a volunteer effort. If you are interested in helping in any capacity, please contact us. We need reporters, photographers, and community contact liaisons. We would especially like to find someone to report on events at the local schools, and would be delighted to hear from representatives of the local civic organizations. This is a chance to share your insights, knowledge, and opinions.

If you or your organization have information, news, or calendar events that should be publicized, please submit them for publication.

Who We Are

Byrd Park was started in April 2009 by Tim Vaughan. Vaughan gave up the site in August of that year and Byrd Park became a group effort.
