Update on Vacant Lot at 431 N K Street

Today a number of Mango Groves residents, along with other residents of Lake Worth, and the mayor, began converting the vacant lot at 431 N K Street into a park. We spread mulch for a pathway around the large tree near the center of the lot and placed the benches that the city donated. We also cleared a lot of branches and vegetation from the lot, along with concrete, glass and trash. Someone donated some flowers and they were planted as well. We still have some work to do to make the lot into a real park. Plans are in effect to plant some shade trees along the sidewalks and to get more mulch for more pathways. The effort today was a positive stride towards improving our neighborhood and City. We would like to thank all those who helped, especially Suzanne Mulvehill who came through big for us on Friday to ensure that 3 benches, two trash cans, and a recycle bin were dropped off. Also, after dropping off these items the City took away a discarded sofa from the lot and some other waste. I will be posting some pictures on our blog shortly.
