Park Alliance and neighborhood volunteers will be getting their gloves dirty as
they plant dozens of new shrubs and perennials in the park from 10 am until 2
pm Saturday, October 17th. Come help us put more shine on this neighborhood
gem! They'll provide gloves, shovels, and smiles – no experience necessary. We
