Michael and Danielle Abril are active members of the Meacham Park Neighborhood Association. They show up at meetings. They volunteer. They help inform others in the community.
“Meacham Park is a blessing to us because it allowed us to be relatively close to my work and in a great place, a great community,” Michael Abril said.
The neighborhood is a mostly black area of Kirkwood that had been segregated from the rest of the city for years. But that’s changing.
