Just a reminder: Tomorrow, May 12 is Love Your Park Day at Marconi Plaza. Cleaning the park from 10 am till noon. meet at the bocce court..........rakes, gloves and bags are provided ......Pony rides and face painting at 15th and Bigler Sts. from noon till 3 pm. Rain is forecasted to end by 9 am, so everything at this time is a go.....
Just a brief note about a dog park in Marconi Plaza....a dog park is costly to enclose in fencing and it must be maintained by an administrative group with rules and regulations. Our friends group does not have the personnel to initiate or maintain such an undertaking. Interested parties can approach this with the city and check out feasibility.
We have been receiving many complaints about dog owners allowing their dogs to run free off of leashes. This practice is against the law and can be dangerous to children and other dogs. Please have your dog leashed in Marconi Plaza, both east and west sides and please, pick up your dog's waste. Again, it is the law and it is common courtesy.
Please join us for our Love Your Park Week activities on Saturday, May 12, 2018. We will be cleaning the park from 10 am till noon and we will meet at the bocce court. We supply rakes, gloves and bags. At noon till 3 pm there will be pony rides and face painting at 15th and Bigler Streets.

It was extremely disappointing to see people climbing our Christmas tree in Marconi Plaza on Eagles parade day. It was completely irresponsible to climb a tree that cannot support the weight of people on its branches and, parents, you should be ashamed of yourself for encouraging your children to do this. We had a wonderful Christmas celebration in December with this tree and we hope that the neighborhood appreciates our efforts to promote a warm community spirit.
