2018 Greenspace Report
The long standing Friends of Lenzi Park Greenspace group’s consistent care of Lenzi Park is evident in the work accomplished this summer. At Lenzi Park a path curves its way through the garden space. Previously this path saw reoccurring weeds due to the nature of the pea stones that covered it. This year a group from Emerge joined the Friends of Lenzi Park for a monumental work day in which the peastone was removed, and then through the efforts of the Friends of Lenzi Park a new stonedust path was laid. The focus for the year lay in caring for the plants already in the park, however a 12 perennials were planted in beds cleared along Saint John Street. Through the constant efforts of Volunteers like Jerry, Jenny, Michael and Sara, Lenzi Park continues to be a natural oasis in the Wooster Square neighborhood.
