This Friends of Mandell Park celebration features special guest speakers Mayor Annise Parker and Parks and Recreation department director Joe Turner. Ground was broken in February for the renovation of the park. The Renovation Celebration will unveil the new facelift given to Mandell Park, thanks to the more than $1 million raised by the group through foundations, companies and individual donors.
The newly refurbished park includes an expanded organic community garden (Meredith Gardens) with handicap-accessible, raised planting beds; a state-of-the-art compost station; the Kathrine G. McGovern/John P. McGovern Foundation meadow bordered by a curving seat wall and tree-lined walkway; and Skip's Shed, a recycled shipping container converted to a garden center in honor of Friends of Mandell Park president Skip Almoney.
Refreshments will be served.
