Thank you Ashley Fry! She brought a friend. Great Morning! It is so energizing to be with happy people making things nice for everyone.
9 volunteers x 2hrs= 18 man hours. We dug out dozens of mulberry saplings, pruned more rose bushes. Ew- please keep dogs in paved areas. Too much dog poo in area prohibited for dogs. Photo by Andrew Garn ... See MoreSee Less
While I love this park, I hate this park. Its a great park that gets heavily abused by visitors that live near by. Im really sick of the smokers (cigs or weed), the people who dont clean up after their dogs and the teens that are rude. The park needs monitored.
If you see an issue in the neighborhood, there are resources to help.
These pictures are from the vacant building (Gilman Hall) at 353 E 17th Street. Garbage and litter were piling up in the planters and sidewalks. A 311 complaint was made along with contact to Councilwoman Carlina Rivera’s office.
As of today, the area has finally been cleaned up! Hopefully the graffiti on the planters will be painted over also.
