Last weekend of volunteers building Turtle Grove

November 20, 2003

Albany -- The final weekend of construction of the Turtle Grove play park is underway. Volunteers are putting the final touches on the play park, that sits in the middle of the new Albany Tomorrow downtown improvements.

The designer of Turtle Grove, Tom Arie-Donch, was finishing the concrete alligator. He drew up the design four years ago, and says he is pleased with the nearly finished product. "They did great. Anytime when people come out and give of their own time, it's a wonderful thing. But when you have literally hundreds and probably thousands of people helping out like they did, it's a real success for the community."

Volunteers are needed to complete Turtle Grove this weekend.

If you would like to help, work will start at 8 AM Saturday, and continue all weekend.

Turtle Grove's grand opening will be December Sixth, before the Christmas Parade.
