Fall Clean Up in the Park

08 Nov 2013, Posted by Oona Moore in Events

From Friends of Van Vorst Park:

Although we maintain Van Vorst Park by ourselves all year long, the Friends of Van Vorst Park could really use your help now that fall has fallen. The park is covered with leaves and they must be removed in order to protect the lawns and prevent fungus from forming on next spring’s growth on the trees and plants.

Tomorrow (Saturday, Nov 9th), between 11:00am-2:00pm, we will be providing rakes, leaf bags, and gloves to anyone that can put in an hour or more to help with this clean-up. School kids may use this volunteer effort towards community service hours.

We only ask twice a year for additional help in making this, what we think is, one of the most beautiful places in Jersey City. Please join us tomorrow, meet your neighbors, help your park, and get a little exercise at the same time.
