Countdown to GDS: Allston Clean Up
Allston Neighborhood Clean-Up
We all know Allston, whether it’s for its weekend night life or the hidden treasures that lie within. One of these places is the Stanley Ringer Park. Stanley A. Ringer Playground is a 12.25-acre public park on Allston Street between Commonwealth and Brighton avenues. The park consists of two tennis courts, two basketball courts, a baseball diamond, a playground and many walkways. Joan Pasquale, the director of the Parents and Community Build Group, who sponsor the park, says that the park is for all neighbors and wants it to feel safe for everyone who uses the park. The goal is to get people to incorporate themselves in the neighborhood.
So how can you help give back to this grand idea? Sign up for this GDS site and work with District 14 of the Boston Police Department cleaning up the park. You will get to work with alumni and police officers at the site and will clean up trash, help cut down trees, and beautify the area. It’s right down the street from your lovely home at BU, and one of our largest sites, making it a great place to meet new people.
