On October 6th the Westview Community Organization participated in “Hands On Atlanta Day.” Thanks to an initial grant received through Hands On Atlanta for the Stokes Avenue Park in the spring, the WCO was eligible for a follow-up grant if participating on “Hands On Atlanta Day.” The grant purchased additional landscaping to be planted in the park. Neighbors and the “Youth of Westview” program came together to first clean up the pocket park and then plant peach trees, camellia and rose bushes, chrysanthemums, hostas, pansies, and a variety of other plants. The last task was spreading grass seed. Little by little the Stokes Avenue Pocket Park is developing into a little neighborhood oasis.

Work on the Stokes Avenue Community Pocket Park continued on Saturday, June 16th, 2012. The park is starting to take shape – the picket fence is now complete, mulch was spread, additional landscaping was planted, and two raised beds were planted for a community herb garden. The work was rounded off with a picnic in the new park!
