Kirkland Highlands’ Cotton Hill Park Gets Better and Better

In Kirkland News, Kirkland WA on March 9, 2009 at 1:18 pm

Neither rain nor snow stopped about 50 people from helping to clean up Kirkland’s Cotton Hill Park on Saturday.  EarthCorps, The University of Washington Restoration Ecology Network (UW-REN), Kirkland Parks Dept. people, and citizen volunteers of all ages were there.  City Manager Dave Ramsey, Sharon Rodman, and Karen Story, the president of the Kirkland Highlands’ Association, were  working hard.  A huge area of the park was cleaned out as people pulled  blackberry bushes and cut up logs and other debris.  The wheelbarrows were flying by as volunteers removed the debris.  People were on a mission to get the park cleaned up.  The park is turning into something special.
