Peoria (WEEK) – Build Peoria held a fundraiser to make a new green space in Peoria’s southside.

Dozens of people came out to their annual chili cook off at Dozer Park.

They’re hoping to buy and put in benches, plant trees, and add some grills.

Build Peoria has raised over $40,000 for the park so far.

“It’s going to be an area that is for the community to come together to envision all the things they’re grateful for. Again, hence the name potent gratitude. Potent stands for all the things you can be grateful for,” Build Peoria treasurer Pete Chambers said.

Chambers hoped the park would be a catalyst for greater things to come on the south side.
