June Work-Party

Park Pals and the City of Federal Way’s Parks Department continued their recent efforts to significantly upgrade the appearance and safety of French Lake Park at the June Work Party.


Volunteers and Parks Staff helped “re-home” many dozens of plants from Town Square Park to the friendly confines of French Lake Park

Many, many thanks to all who helped.  Many  volunteers  and staff put in “lots” of long hours in heat which surpassed 90 degrees to do planting, clean up, and, of course, do battle with the ever-present insidious blackberries!

Even so, it was a productive and eventful day for the park and “fun” day for at least one furry patron!
