A Successful Earth Day Cleanup

Image uploaded from iOS (33).jpg

On Saturday, April 21, 11th and Bark held a cleanup at the park in conjunction with a neighborhood-wide cleanup, the Great CoHi Cleanup. In addition to picking up any debris in and around the park—including up and down Park Rd. and 11th St.—volunteers repainted the benches and table, and repaired the plastic meshing that keeps small dogs safely in the park. The biggest project of the day was creating a dry well to stop a standing water issue not-so-fondly referred to as "the pond." Thanks to everyone who spent their afternoon helping, and in particular those who were on shovel duty.

 An extra special thanks to the guys who did the digging! (And to Miles and Ivy, who probably also tried to help with the digging.)

 Thanks to Ward 1 Councilmember, Brianne Nadeau, for fighting to try to get money in the budget so that the DC Council can buy, save, and improve the park. And, a thanks for stopping by the cleanup.
