Back in September Councilman Curtis Jones, Jr. toured Rose Playground and promised to install fencing around the playground for the safety of our children and to prevent the illegal dumping that had been plaguing the park all year. We are excited to report the fencing project has been started and will be installed from Haverford Ave to 75th Street. Thank you Councilman Jones #Mr4thDistrict
