Description
Yates Pocket Park is the sweet little grove of trees that is nestled between Felix Ave., Grove Blvd., the south end of Roy G. Guerrero Park, Richardson St. and Hogan St.  It has so much potential as a public space, but needs a little love from the community.  While the park has been recently cleaned by the city there is still a ton of trash from past dumping throughout the north end of the park in the gullies leading into Roy G. Guerrero Park as well as some blown in debris and litter around the edges and among the trees.  

This year we are going to focus on the trash pick up, but hopefully in the future we can work with the City Arborist to restore the grove and work on some planting projects.

I think we also might have time to mulch a few trees and outline future wildflower areas. Let's plan to also save some time after the clean up for a neighbor meet and greet and talk about some ideas and hopes for the future of this little park.
Requirements
Please bring sturdy shoes and gloves if you have them. We will be going down into the ravines if necessary.
PerksA great way to meet the neighbors and develop some ideas for the future of Yates Pocket Park! We will have snacks and drinks to share and a prize for the most interesting piece of trash found!
Parking DetailsPark along the street on Felix Ave. or in the cul-de-sac off of Grove Blvd.
