The City carved a public parking lot out of the south end of the Adult (formerly Commerce) High School playing fields a year or two ago. Between the lot and Preston is a boulevard of green grass, a fence, and a strip of perennials.
I have called the city’s engineers on this site more than once, to get the contractors to remove the heavy equipment and supplies they sometimes dump on top of this garden. All the contractor site guys I talk to on Preston are really nice … so why do they think no one will notice when they drop a two ton piece of pipe right on top of the flower bed?
This picture, however, is not about complaining, its about the persistence of the little garden strip in Little Italy despite the massive constructions projects going on around it. Well done little garden !
