Green, Kan. — The City of Green is hoping to give their city park a makeover this weekend with the help of anyone willing to lend a hand.
Bev Lippert Caley, who organized the cleanup and is a member of the Green Revitalization Organization or GRO, said plans include removing dead trees and brush from the park.
In the future, the GRO hopes to make a destination for picnics or possibly add in a band shell.
The park is located a half mile north of Green and clean up efforts will begin around 8 am on April 23rd. Caley said you don’t have to be from Green to help out.
Caley said this is just one thing they have planned in Green through GRO.
The park in downtown Green has also been cleaned up. She says this is all an attempt to bring life back into the small town that has a lot to offer and that it was just neglected for many years.
