The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital.

Come Clean and Weed and Plant Bulbs at the Parkside Playground Tomorrow Morning!
Just got wind of this, so sorry for the late notice. The Parks Dept itself organized it, but their organizing of their getting the word out was a bit on the rushed side. No matter...it should be another great morning in this superb neighborhood amenity. Basically, the lead gardener will be out their weeding and planting and cleaning and mulching and stuff. It's a great way to share the world of gardening with youngsters, and an excellent way to work on your deep knee bends and stretches if you're a creaky adult. C'mon down!
