A few neighbors celebrated Earth Day by giving back to the community at the newly renovated Park View Park. At the Earth Day Park and Community Cleanup on Saturday April 20th, neighbors joined volunteers from the Event Promotion firm, PMG, to weed and clear the area between the high and short fences separating the Park View Park multipurpose field from Princeton Place. PMG volunteers had traveled from as far as Florida to attend the Earth Day Broccoli Festival. They took time from a busy weekend of sightseeing and festival work to make a positive contribution to our community. Thanks PMG!
Committed neighbors who came to the park for the event and loaned tools had a big impact, as did the kids who pitched in and made an adult-sized difference.
The event was sponsored by the Park View United Neighborhood Coalition and Friends of Park View Park. Organizers hope to continue to hold monthly gardening events at the park throughout the summer.
Below are some additional photos from the event.
