Sharing the Dream

Each January, Citizens Energy Group and hundreds of Citizens employees come together with partner companies for our annual Sharing the Dream event to refurbish a Indianapolis Park Department facility.

During this year’s Sharing the Dream event nearly 300 Citizens Energy Group employees partnered with Indy Parks, the Indianapolis Parks Foundation, Marksmen Construction Services and Mitsch Design to restore Krannert Park. Krannert Park is located on the west side of Indianapolis and offers water aerobics, swimming lessons, Zumba classes and more.

“Krannert Park had around 89,000 visitors last year that attended Indy Parks programming, used the facility or rented space,” said Indy Parks Director, John Williams. “We are grateful to have a partner like Citizens to enhance this park’s facility and make it better for all of our existing and future users.”

During the event a new ceiling was added in the park’s main room and new flooring in the multipurpose room, weight room and the gymnasium. A sound system and TVs were also added to the weight room. In addition, employees painted and cleaned to make the park a more inviting place

This year’s service project marks Citizens’ seventh partnership with Indy Parks and the Indianapolis Parks Foundation. Over the years, Citizens has contributed more than $700,000 for improvements to Brookside Park Family Center, Martin Luther King Park’s pool and bathhouse, Pride Park Community Center, Municipal Gardens, Eagle Creek Hide-A-Way and Perry Pike Ice Arena.
