In 2018 we organized many projects to remove trash and invasive plants and install hundreds of pounds of rocks in the dry creek area. Our next project is on Monday January 21 (MLK Day) from 9am- noon.We’ll remove invasive plants, which is always fun! Please RSVP to: email@example.com so we’ll have enough tools and gloves.
Betty is leading a group on Thursday December 13 to weed the dry creek area near the tennis courts and add hundreds of pounds of rocks. She needs someone to help her load and deliver rocks to the park either the day before or morning of. If you have a strong back and are available, please use the Contact Us form down below and let her know.

This year we had volunteer projects almost every month to remove invasive plants, mulch the path behind the gym and of course the Leapharts picked up trash daily. Looking forward, in addition to volunteer projects, what park improvements would you like to see? Some suggestions: replace the narrow entrance bridge from the parking lot with a wider one; create a 1/4 mile walking trail; repaint the original mural on the tennis court backstop; add to/replace the 15 year old playground equipment. Except for the mural, whatever we choose will cost much more than what we have in our account, but we’ve successfully fundraised in the past (grants, donations) and can do it again. So- close your eyes- envision something new and wonderful in the park and let me know what you see!
