THANKS to Friends of PKB parks! July 26, 2016July 26, 2016 rickmodesitt I want to take a moment to thank the good folks who belong to the Friends of Parkersburg Park. They have tackled several clean up and beautification projects at both Southwood and Parkersburg City Park. One of the most notable was the complete restoration of 23rd and Park Avenue known as Summers Park or now referred to as Pappas Corner. Sadly…the city let it fall apart. The committee took it on and it is one of the most beautiful parts of city park now. THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO DONATED TIME, MONEY, ENERGY, SUPPLIES.. Tonight, Monday July 25, the committee celebrated with a pizza party at this little park. I was honored to have been invited. THANK YOU again!
