Thank you for the great help in Isham Park on It's My Park Day

Thank you to all who participated on It's My Park Day!  Saturday May 15th was a beautiful day for the event.

Many thanks also to Rob Kleinbardt of New Heights Realty, for the bottled water.

Beginning at 11:00am, the Isham Park Restoration Program 1970, Inc. in Bruce Reynolds Memorial Garden hosted Pre-School on the Planet, whose members planted in the garden. 

Volunteers for Isham Park lead the way on the south slope of the park, by clearing small dead trees and invasive brush on the south slope near the Isham Park entrance path.  The Volunteers also began the process of creating erosion control barriers using the brush and trunks of the cleared debris.

Yes We Can Inwood weeded and cleaned the southwest slope on the retaining wall, a herculean effort!

Then at about 1:00pm, the Volunteers with Yes We Can Inwood moved on to the planting and watering of the Marigolds, donated by Isham Park Restoration Program, 1970, Inc., and the annuals, provided by the Partnerships for Parks and the NYC Parks Department, along the Park Terrace West sidewalk beds.

It all looks so beautiful!  Everyone who sees it thanks us...
