South County (Vallejo/Benicia) region of SCYD invites everyone to come and help us clean up a neighborhood park!
Richardson Park is a huge 12-acre park in Vallejo, complete with a BBQ area and a baseball field. It has seen severe trauma over the past few years, since the swimming pool that is also on the lot has been shut down.
The pool wall has now become a haven for tagging and graffiti.
South County region will be joining forces with Vallejo VFOG and the Graffiti Removal Volunteer team to clean up this enormous wall, and provide some support to the completely overwhelmed GVRD, who have placed Richardson Park on their longterm clean-up list.
