Summer Clean Up Success

Thanks to everyone who participated in the clean up; it was good to see such a great turn out. Together We collected 20 bags of litter and pulled up some of the rampant balsam, leaving the park and river looking pristine. The issue of dog owners not cleaning up after their pets remains a big problem. We urge all to help keep the park clean and safe for everyone.
