ORIGINAL REPORT, 12:38 PM: The sun made an unforecast appearance and there’s a good crowd at Roxhill Park for the first community barbecue organized by neighbors working to get more community involvement with the park – the cookout tent in our top photo is just part of it. Stop by for not only your free food, but also to find out more about what’s at the park, to share your ideas about potential future events and activities, and to connect with other groups and agencies.
It’s on until 2 pm, just past the playground along 29th south of Barton. More photos later!
4:24 PM: Photos added above – plus, other barbecue scenes – that was Earl Lee on the grill:
Visitors got a chance to learn about wildlife in the park:
And support from nearby community groups – here’s Highland Park Action Committee vice chair Gunner Scott:
