If you can see a stone path in Graeser Park today, it’s because a Robbinsdale Lion uncovered it.
Volunteer cleanup efforts are on hold: MnDOT has directed Graeser Park volunteers to stop until the land is transferred to the City of Robbinsdale, or they are approved for MnDOT Sponsorship program.
Watch the CCX interview with Marcia Glick for more about the land transfer.
Gathering a few 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
