Bringing the City Park up to par with other nearby picnic and camping areas is good for local families as well - all gain from pleasant, well-maintained grounds and accommodations.

Jamie says: Mark your calendars!
Sunday, October 16, at 10 a.m. we're laying down sand and installing pavers. Joh Jones is donating the pavers and Bob Severson has offered some sand, but we'll still need a bit over a cubic yard more, and if someone has access to a tamper we could use, they would be my hero.*
Sunday, November 13, at 10 a.m. we're installing the planters that Peter Sonne built for us out of recycled pallets. We'll be putting in a wicking bed system that will require less frequent watering, topped with awesome compost from Brian Dennis at Camp Singing Wind, then the plants are going to their new homes!
In the meantime, the mural is coming along! We're doing more informal work events several times a week, and even if you're not artistically inclined, we can use your help. Let me know if you or anyone you know would be interested in either painting the mural itself or helping put on the final clear coat.
I fixed our Facebook page. Hopefully these events are easily shareable now. Social media is obviously not my jam, so anything you can do to spread the word would be greatly appreciated.
The upcoming event pages are here:
This project would not be possible without our volunteers. Thank you so much for all your hard work and gracious donations!
*Hero Award goes to Mike Morgan for providing a tamper.
