MARIANNA POCKET PARK PROJECT

Makeover Marianna!Marianna native and national home improvement TV/Radio host, Danny Lipford, is bringing his popular syndicated television show, “Today’s Homeowner” to Marianna to tackle a special community project – and we need your help!

Lipford and his “Today’s Homeowner” TV crew will revitalize an empty downtown lot damaged by Hurricane Michael in 2018, and convert it into a “pocket park.” The park will serve as a public gathering and small event space for the community. The project will be filmed for a special 2-part episode of “Today’s Homeowner” that will air nationally in early 2021.
