Mafera Park cleanup helps bring attention to necessary renovations

Community group Friends of Mafera Park organized a park cleanup consisting of residents, high school students and various community leaders on Aug. 27 to raise awareness of the needed upgrades for the Ridgewood park.

Friends of Mafera Park, a group of locals, originally joined forces in 2016 to get funding for much-needed renovations in the park, such as updated equipment and fencing.
