Members of Sunnyside Gardens Park Hold Cleanup

April 16, 2010 By Christian Murray

Members of Sunnyside Gardens Park held a big clean up last Saturday.

The group collected trash in front of the park (next to Barnett Ave), which has been a major dumping ground for years.

Ciaran Staunton, the leader of the Friends of Sunnyside Garden Park, said it was important to keep the area tidy.

“We decided to clean it up and add plantings to help improve the area — as major renovation of the park is now nearing completion.”  The group started a major overhaul earlier this year.  See story.

Local assemblywoman Marge Markey participated in the event, and said in a statement:
“These neighbors love their community and their volunteer efforts set an outstanding example of how citizens are prepared to come forward in these tight economic times to pitch in and make their neighborhood greener and cleaner.”
