Kiwanis Community Park renovations in full swing


NEW RIVER – The New River Kiwanis Community Park’s renovation has begun, and already the changes can be seen.

On July 17-18, volunteers from the Tramonto Home Depot and volunteers from the community worked together to begin the park updates. Volunteers cleaned up the Little League areas, trimmed trees, painted the interior of the bathrooms, and began the exterior painting, all in two days.

Remodeling the 25-year-old park bathrooms is first on the renovation agenda. A new concrete pad is planned for the park, and a barbecue will be installed in the area. New trees that will shade the playground will be planted, as well.

The next ‘Caring for Your Community Park’ weekend has been set for Friday, July 31 and Saturday, Aug. 1, 6 a.m.-noon. The agenda for that weekend includes work on the swamp cooler, further painting, plumbing renovation, and more general clean-up. Lunch will be provided to volunteers at this community clean-up.

Volunteers are needed for the continuing park clean-up! Anyone who is interested in helping can stop by on July 31 or Aug. 1 and bring garden tools or anything else that might be helpful. For more details, call Tony at (623) 229-6820.
