What was done for Parks Month this year?

This year:

  • Students from Holy Name of Jesus and Friends of Belview Park Adopt-a-Park Group built an outdoor classroom, graffiti abatement and tree mulching at Bellview Park.
  • Community volunteers built an outdoor classroom, teaching garden and nature areas at the Norman Pinky Lewis Parkette and Cathy Wever School.
