Redoing Maxwell Park
A newly invigorated community organizing effort to redo Maxwell Park has begun and is moving forward. They've scheduled a community workday for Saturday, January 25th. Part of their plans include making the park safer for kids, more light-friendly and less crime-friendly, changing the landscape for more vegetation which will be more drought tolerant. This week they've been working on removing some old Eucalyptus trees that are several hundred feet high. Here's some pictures from their work today. It's great fun to watch and a marvel to see how they dismantle the existing trees bough by bough and bit by bit.
