Thirty-two volunteers helped beautify Westfield’s MacGregor Park on April 20. Washington Township Deputy Trustee Becky McCanna said the park’s third annual spring clean up day was very successful.

“We had 32 volunteers who planted 31 trees, cleared a dam, removed about 25 large honeysuckle, mulched the rain garden and collected six bags of garlic mustard. Last year we collected 90, so this year’s crop was much reduced and that is very good,” she said. “Everyone worked hard and accomplished so much for the benefit of the park.”

Washington Township recently purchased 40 additional acres from the MacGregor family to expand the park. Construction is being done around the front entrance to create more parking, picnic shelters, a one-mile trail and an outdoor learning center. Another 250 trees were planted in that area last week.

“Things will change a lot over the next four months,” McCanna said.

MacGregor Park is nestled at the intersection of U.S. 31 and Ind. 38.
