Happy Birthday from all two and four legged friends
Spring is here and the Park is showing off its bountiful splendor! The azaleas are in bloom, the tulips and daffodils are smiling and the trees are starting to blossom. What a wonderful time to take a walk or ride your bike (with your mask!) and enjoy nature right outside your door. We are so blessed to have this wonderful and nearby urban park to lift our spirits during these challenging times.
In celebration of the Park’s 30th anniversary this year, we have some ambitious restoration and gardening plans in store. These include implementing the Durham Oval restoration project, updating the butterfly garden near the Mass Ave entrance, planting 100’s of flowers, plants and trees and re-seeding some of the grassy areas.
Fortunately for all of us, parks are considered essential to our well-being during the Covid-19 advisory. We are carefully starting to plan our restoration schedule, and we’ve asked our garden stewards and other volunteers to stay at least six feet apart and to wear a mask when working in the Park.
Over the years, your generous contributions have helped make the Park a joyful urban sanctuary, and I hope you are able to make a small donation this year. As a volunteer organization, 100% of all funds go directly to maintaining our Park. Your continued support is deeply appreciated and will help us keep the Park looking beautiful and a place of enjoyment for all.
Be safe, please stay healthy, put on a mask, be socially distant and enjoy your park!
