After days of rain, the sun came out on Saturday morning, just in time for the city's official "It's My Park Day." In Carroll Park, volunteers from Friends Of Carroll Park and from New York Cares gathered to paint benches and to tend to the garden areas. Much weeding and planting was accomplished. Brooklyn Parks Commissioner Kevin Jeffries stopped by Carroll Park and seemed very impressed with the volunteer effort.
If you would like to volunteer to keep our neighborhood park looking its best, please contact the Friends Of carroll Park at friendsofcarrollpark at yahoo dot com. Not only is it rewarding, its also a way to connect to your neighbors and community.
