Friends of Morgan Junction Parks: First event Saturday

The newly formed Friends of Morgan Junction Parks is inviting you to be part of history – help out with its first event this Saturday! The photo and invitation are from Barry:

Our group is dedicated to maintaining and beautifying the two parks in the Morgan Junction area. We invite any member of the community who would like to volunteer their gardening and design skills to join. This is also a great opportunity to learn about urban landscape issues and the latest, research-based horticultural practices. There is no time commitment. Our group can be found here.

Our first event is this Saturday from 10 AM to noon at the main park next to the Beveridge Place Pub. Seattle Parks will bring us two yards of wood chips from Lincoln Park for mulching the plant beds. Tools will be provided. The work should be easy and enjoyable and will offer the chance to learn about what’s planted in the parks. We hope to see you there.

    Anyone hear any recent news about the idea to purchase the adjoining convenience store property to expand this park?

    I’m given to understand that the promise of free coffee and Krispy Kremes will lure the reluctant volunteer out on a Saturday morning.

    The park was nice until all of the homeless decided to sit there all day and drink. It’s not a place I will take my kids to anymore.

    L., if you see illegal activity in the park, call the police. Help keep the park a place you will wish to visit.

Sorry, comment time is over.
