Summary

This previously vacant lot has been transformed into a beautiful park by the continuous efforts of the neighbors of this community for more than ten years. This year three core group members weeded, mulched and planted more black-eyed susans, cone flowers and weigelas. The greenspace group also hosted a fabulous potluck BBQ at the site celebrating the park where several neighbors participated.
