Summary

The Friends of Beaver Ponds Park (FOBPP) group is comprised of dedicated residents from the Beaver Hills community who work to maintain and improve the natural beauty of their neighborhood park. 2009 marks the sixth year that FOBPP has partnered with Community Greenspace. This year the group worked to clear invasive species from the pond bank and around the benches in order to provide a tranquil open space for park users. In addition to weeding and maintaining the three existing flower gardens, a new flower bed was added to the entrance of the park on Fournier Street and native shrubs were added to replace areas formerly filled with invasive vegetation.
