William lives in a cool house with a turret. He loves his home and his street but he longs for a backyard. When William decides that a vacant block of overgrown parkland should become the community backyard, he discovers that making it happen is more difficult than he thought.

How will William handle the obstacles ahead of him? Can he win the community’s support? What would you do?
