I have been a ‘friend’ of Kozciusko Park since we bought our house. My husband and I believe in the importance of being involved in the community and maintaining open space. We started by picking up trash on a regular basis, and then my love of gardening got me tending the raised bed and obtaining the entrance planters. I see the park as an extension of my front yard. My interest in parks got me involved with the Wilmington Beautification Commission and since K Park was one of the first parks to receive funding and beautification efforts, I extended my involvement to maintaining the newly created entrance beds.
