Almaden Neighbors Volunteer Together at Jeffrey Fontana Park

In the Almaden Valley, Jeffrey Fontana Park is a popular and serene gathering spot for neighbors to enjoy a walk, for dogs to enjoy playing at the dog park, and for youth to climb and swing on the playground. As people drive by the park on McAbee Road, they are greeted with an abundant bed of colorful red, white, and blue roses and plants; which honor fallen officer Jeffrey Fontana. Every winter these roses are pruned to encourage healthy development during the upcoming growing season. On Sunday, February 12, over 30 volunteers and neighbors came together to show support for their community park and the Martin-Fontana Parks Association (MFPA). Gardening staff and Project Leaders from the Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS) Volunteer Management Unit taught the volunteers how to properly crop every rose cane. Along with completing preparatory tasks, the volunteers also assisted with the landscaping in the Butterfly Garden. As the winter season turns to spring, the area is now prepared for big and bright blooms with lots of beautiful color, which will enhance the livability of the neighborhood! For more information, contact Justin Long, PRNS Deputy Director, at 408-793-5579.
