OAKLAND, CA. – Approximately 75 volunteers, including USAgain helpers, teamed up to clean up and beautify DeFremery Park from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Sat., April 26 in Oakland, California.
Council member Lynette Gibson McElhaney (District 3) and Mayor Jean Quan came out to show their support.
“Cleaning up our neighborhood parks is great for the environment and fun, too,” said Tobin Costen, USAgain’s local Division Manager. “DeFremery Park is also particularly memorable because many community leaders grew up there.”
This weekend was also the second anniversary to straighten the park up during Earth Month.
Volunteers tidied the park grounds and field house, painted benches, removed trash, picked weeds, and planted flowers and various plants.
