New Centerpiece for Ron Rigsby Park

We had a really good turnout of volunteers for It’s My Park Day on Saturday, March 6th.  We were lucky to get 2 deliveries of mulch and were able to spread the barky-kind in and around the picnic tables under the trees.  The new trees and gardens got liberal applications of the composty-kind.  We got about 35 volunteers and they got the gardens planted, trees and shrubs planted, mulch spread and the tables and benches painted with preservative (with anti-graffiti properties!).
More work is needed. 

  • Need an engineer and plumber to get the water connection in the park.   
  • Paint over graffiti on the storm sewer structure.
  • Add borders on the two gardens along with more plants, etc. 

 By May the flower seeds should be up and blooming – we are planning a neighborhood picnic.   Thanks again to all the wonderful volunteers for the good work!   See you soon.
