Blackie’s Garden Update
Blackie’s garden is a colorful public garden located near the parking lot of Blackie’s Pasture and maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers, led by Harvey Rogers. Harvey reports that several work sessions totaling over 40 hours were held throughout March where volunteers pruned, planted, measured for new plants, and added drip irrigation. Soon a new shed will be anchored near the garden to house gardening tools on site. If you are interested in learning more about Blackie’s Garden, Harvey will be giving a tour on Sunday, May 3rd, from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM.
Updates at Community Park Playground
Community Park Playground was closed for two days in March in order to receive some much needed repairs. The playground is one of the most popular parks in Marin and provides Belvedere’s children with a safe place to play. On March 16 and 17, the rubber matting was repaired where needed and extended to meet the edge of the concrete path that winds through the play space. Additional playground fiber was also added to the areas around and under the swings and play structures. At their February meeting, the Parks and Open Space Committee held their Spring Walking Tour at the playground and observed all of the equipment at the park in an effort to prepare for any repair and replacement necessities in the future. The playground is a great asset of the Belvedere Community.
