To assist with the SCA clean up, nearly 60 Domtar volunteers cleared brush, trash and overgrown trees. By the end of the day, all areas of the park were visible through the tree line.
Local residents were pleased to see the improvements. One couple, whose house is directly across the street from the park, said they were “so happy to see volunteers here, and [they] hope this encourages people to start using the park more recreationally now.”
