If you love this park you won't have to look far to find someone to thank. Students at nearby Avondale East Elementary School helped design the neighborhood park, which used to go by the name Highland Crest Park. It was renamed to honor longtime Hi-Crest resident Betty Phillips, who had begun asking the city to do something with the park in the 1960s. The park got a big student-influenced overhaul in 2004. Betty Phillips Park now features, a garden landscaped with limestone, a basketball court, slides, bright new playground equipment, multiple play areas, red benches, lots of green play space for running, grills, an open-air shelter, a drinking fountain and path. The park is located at Girard and Irvingham streets.
