The snow and ice piles are gone from the park! Volunteers that are itching to get busy the trash bags are in the toolboxes! All set for park cleanup!

  • We are always sad to see volunteers go. If you can no longer garden please contact us at so we can thank you for your dedication and pick up your toolbox keys.
