On Saturday, May 10th, neighbors from throughout the Crandall Park area gathered to clean up and beautify the park.
Several neighborhood groups from across the north side participated in the event, along with Treez Please, Green Youngstown, YNDC, and Councilman Nate Pinkard. Trash and debris were cleared throughout the park from Guadalupe to the west to Kensington Avenue to the east. The old tennis courts in the park we also cleared of leaves and debris to prepare for reuse as a dog park. Two new trees were planted in the park as part of the City's certification for Tree City USA. A community cookout was held at the end of the event to celebrate the success of the day.
The next neighborhood workday is schedule for Saturday, May 17th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm in the Idora Neighborhood. Volunteers should meet at YNDC's revitalization campus at 820 Canfield Road, Youngstown, Ohio 44511.
