Even in this off season inclement winter weather, work is going on in little Lewis Park. Crews have been busy removing the invasive laurel and ivy plants and putting in ground cover to prevent erosion in the ravines. Further, a crew has been working with the foundation for the eventual kiosk along 15 th Ave. So. At the 14th St. "Y". To be completed by mid January.
More ground cover/compost material will be spread on the upper south area of the park on MLK day, January 17th. There is still much work to be done in the lower east side of the park, with further removal of invasive plants,but planting of native plant species will begin in early spring, when we will look forward to more people in our neighborhood and groups will volunteer to help with this worthwhile renewal project, that will make Lewis Park the jewel entrance to Beacon Hill from the city.
