Quick Action By Volunteers Restore Pocket Park
The Eagle Street community in North Adams rallied this week after a newly improved pocket park was vandalized
Tuesday evening. The Berkshire Eagle reports that the damage, which included the uprooting of perennial flowers and bushes, happened about a week after volunteers spent hours at the tiny park this summer.
The vandalism was perpetrated between 8:30 pm and 10:30 pm, according to Benjamin Lamb, who spearheads the NAMAzing Eagle Street Initiative to revitalize the iconic downtown street.
Desparados Owner Peter Oleskiewicz and his employees began to replant everything that could be salvaged. The incident was reported to police, and the Eagle Street Initiative posted about the vandalism on its Facebook page.
