Grand Opening of the newly landscaped Park Avenue Green: June 11th
Please mark your calendars for June 11th for a grand opening of the newly landscaped Park Avenue Green. It will be in the afternoon on 6/4, probably about 3:00 with the awesome band Shine performing from 4:00 to 5:30. This is a monumental change to our neighborhood that was done entirely with private funding from the proceeds of the Park Avenue Festival and private contributions. While the City owns the park, it was neighbors and merchants who stepped up to the plate to make this $40K improvement! Kudos to us!
