Summary

The Rainbow greenspace group consists of neighbors that have been maintaining the park for many years. Two years ago the group had added a brick patio to this beautiful park and this year they hosted three social events and few of the members regularly met to weed, water and plant some interesting perennials such as bear breaches and brunerras. The group has also posted a sandwich board with upcoming community events and stewardship schedule.
