Summary

Blockwatch 303 has made a huge impact on the Westville neighborhood throughout their time as a Community Greenspace group. This season, Blockwatch 303 continued their stewardship/maintenance of Beecher Park and the Memorial Garden they created last year (with Susan McCaslin as the leader of this project). They created this Memorial Garden in memory of Chris Engstrom, a local artist in Westville who passed away due to ALS. This project, along with the dedicated and consistent stewardship/maintenance of Beecher Park, demonstrate the commitment of Blockwatch 303 to helping their community through Greenspace activities.
