Volunteers Help to Beautify Glenwood Community Park

Monday, September 22, 2014

On Saturday, September 20th, volunteers from Tabernacle Evangelical Presbyterian Church, the Idora Neighborhood Association, YNDC, and Youngstown State University worked to enhance and beautify Glenwood Community Park.

Volunteers water-sealed the fence around the park, cleaned up the sidewalks, picked up trash, and mulched and re-planted the flower beds around the park sign and adjacent property where the neighborhood farmer's market is held. Materials for the project were contributed by the Youngstown Department of Parks and Recreation. This event was part of an ongoing commitment between the Parks Department and the community to make Glenwood Community Park a true asset to the surrounding neighborhoods.

The next neighborhood workday is schedule for Saturday, October 4th from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm in the Powerstown Neighborhood. Volunteers should meet at 3458 Powers Way, Youngstown, OH 44502.
