What to Bring
We provide all the tools, gloves, and other restoration supplies, but if you have a favorite pair of clippers and gloves, feel free to bring those. Please dress in layers and consider the weather, sturdy shoes or boots, long pants & long sleeved shirts will protect you from plant scratches. Bring raingear for rainy weather & sunscreen for sun. Also, bring a filled water bottle and snack if you like.
Where to Meet
Meet by the picnic table on the west side of the park, on Thorndyke Ave. near the middle end of the park. Look for the EVENT signs.
Where to Park
Parking is on the street. The west side is also used by bus riders, so you may need to park on a side street. Metro bus 33 & 31 stop right in front of the park and the 19 & 24 & 31 stop one block away at 28th and Blaine. Get off at 28th Ave. West and Blaine and walk to block east to the park.
