Friends Group Receives Award
The Park People, an umbrella organization encouraging citizen stewardship of Milwaukee County Parks has awarded their 2013 Volunteer Group of the Year award to the Friends of Grant Park. The volunteer group, formed in 2006, has worked to improve Grant Park through its Weed-Out! programs each spring and fall; replaced carpeting in the golf course clubhouse; installed security cameras to monitor vandalism at the beach and has installed several rain gardens. More recently, a slope restoration project in the Seven Bridges ravine was installed June 8th. The Friends of Grant Park received the award May 30th at the Greenfield Park Pavilion.
