Thank You, Walden School

A few weeks ago about 50 Walden School children and parents transformed the upper level of Washington Park during their monthly Big Help Day, which teaches students the value of community service.

They were joined by the Friends of Washington Park as well as staff from the Human Services and Recreation Department and the Public Works Department.

By the end of the day, 200 drought-resistant and native California plants were happily springing out of the ground.

But that's not all! The volunteers also painted a new mural at the park.

And now, with its new, welcoming attire, Washington Park is happily ushering in spring!

Many thanks to Antonio Sorcini of the Human Services and Recreation Department.

I wondered who did all that. It looks wonderful, the flowers are fabulous.

Don't work too hard.

Who am I kidding?
