And now a word from Bart Considine: Vassallo Park’s greenery and key location in the heart of the upper village make it a convenient spot for lunch, relaxation with a book, performances, or sports.

However, the picnic tables are in need of replacement, so I decided that my Eagle Scout project would be to improve the overall quality of the park. In addition to replacing a picnic table, my project consists of removing invasive plants (Japanese knotweed).

This knotweed has been overtaking usable space, most noticeably in a patch jutting into the field, and after clearing it out, I will be replacing it with more grassy area.

So far, I have led four work sessions and more than 20 volunteers removing the knotweed in the landscaping piece of my project, and now I am raising funds for necessary materials and a picnic table.

All donations are appreciated.  Click on the link
