60 Volunteers Transform the Park

Many thanks to the 60 volunteers who came out into the cold on Saturday to rake leaves, pick up trash, remove graffiti and plant bulbs. We gathered over 160 bags of leaves, over 3o bags of trash, and many twigs and branches. The place is looking great for our BIG event this coming Thursday at 10am, when DCR will announce their match of City and community funds to stabilize the powder magazine. Volunteers from Sanofi, BU, CRLS, Riverside Boat Club and the neighborhood  made the difference!

Earlier in the week, DCR removed the broken play structure from the park. It looks SO MUCH better now!

    I’m sorry I couldn’t participate but I’m very very grateful for the cleanup. I was there this morning and it looks great.
