This dedicated group deserves more than just our thanks and a logo.
The Robbinsdale Lions Club, Diggers Garden Club and an army of volunteers have been Graeser Park Angels since 2013. Their efforts to maintain Graeser Park prove the community still cares about this historical 1939 Lilac Way park.
Now, they’re waiting for MnDOT to transfer the title to Robbinsdale. Once that happens, they hope a restoration process will begin.
Gathering 3-4 times a summer, these volunteers have
- removed, treated and managed invasive buckthorn by Rock Garden flagstone steps (with help from City Forester Stephan Papiz)
- created open vistas so you can see the stone ‘Rock Garden’ from Broadway Avenue to raise awareness of this historical park
- removed weeds and overgrowth in stonework
- mowed grass
- cleaned up debris
- removed tree stumps
