The TLNA parks committee set up as an initial goal for 2020 to set up or revive “Friends” groups for the three major parks within Tenney/Lapham; Reynolds, Tenney, and James Madison.

As part of the committee chaired by Pat Kelly, I agreed to work on reviving the Reynolds Park friends group. Several neighbors had formed a group a few years ago and have remained interested in working on making Reynolds Park a great park that can be enjoyed for a variety of activities by all people.

I met with Marta Staple, Jessica Becker, Cheryl Balazs, and Bob Shaw on February 11th. Along with Tyler Lark and Sara Christopherson these neighbors have been active as the “Friends of Reynolds Park”. There is a Facebook page by the same name, Friends of Reynolds Park, with over 100 friends.

Our initial meeting was a brainstorming meeting and also assisted me in learning about past activities and priorities. We would like to fi nd a way to connect and involve residents of the large apartment and condominium buildings that are on the south and west sides of the park.

There will be a general park cleanup eff ort on April 25th. We will also plan for a “mini” clean of the park on the morning of June 7th prior to the Party in the Park scheduled for later on that day. The group had many great large and small ideas. Look to the Facebook page for more information. If you are interested in joining our group, please email me at .
