Thanks to the generous donations of time and money to the Friends of the Glen Park Greenway, its Executive Committee has facilitated many critical projects to implement the goals of the Concept Plan. Want to help? Click here.
- Removal of diseased trees
- Hand watering
The Greenway Waterers have now completed four monthly waterings. Waterers use a hose and water donated by a generous neighbor while we await the installation of water lines. Two redwood trees on Parcel 3 were browning badly. Another generous neighbor hired an arborist at her own expense to examine them. The arborist determined that the redwoods need much more frequent watering (weekly instead of every four weeks) and helped to reposition the irrigation bag.

- California Natives
- For a couple of decades, GPGC members tended a Community Garden on Diamond Street (just uphill from Chenery). When that property was sold, the GPGC Steering Committee sought another way to contribute to the community. Accordingly, at the month/year meeting, GPGC welcomed Nicholas Dewar and Adam King to learn about The Greenway. Upon mutual agreement, GPGC began the process of developing a plan for a triangular section of The Greenway called The Woodland. This small area is at the top of a paved walkway from Chilton up to Bosworth.
- In April 2020, this volunteer group was formed to take responsibility for tending several groupings of California native shrubs that were planted in The Greenway by Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF). Their charge was to completely clear a six-foot diameter area at the base of each shrub, to mulch the bare ground, trim dead branches, and alert a member of the Executive Group of any obvious problems, such as diseases, bugs, vandalism, etc.
