The Briarwood Action Network, a neighborhood group, hosted the semiannual “It’s My Park Day!” at Hoover-Manton Playgrounds in Briarwood over the weekend.

About 150 residents of Briarwood and other Queens neighborhoods painted benches and raked leaves around the park’s seating area on Manton Street between 83rd Avenue and Main Street.

The event, co-sponsored by the city Department of Parks and Recreation, featured arts and crafts, storytelling and live music.

The event is held once in the spring and again in the fall. During the fall, daffodils were planted near the seating area.

“It’s above all about recognizing and showing love and caring for our park,” said Aida Vernon, BAN’s president.

Hooray! Elaine and I lived in a detached house on Lander Street for a decade before moving to Richmond Hill. All the houses were well kept and the gardens were lovely.
Our house is gone, I noticed a few weeks ago, when I took a fast nostaglic tour around our old neighborhood. Much building has taken place and I think that some may think there are too many apartment buildings.
But, it is good to know that some bit of green in this growing area is being taken care of and, above all, that people care!
Good for all of you. Keep up the good work.
