South Bay By Jackie is your source for Torrance events.
All are welcome to get down and dirty and lend a hand cleaning, weeding, and dead heading – including groups or individuals who need community service hours.
Even though the park is small, it’s a huge job to keep it looking good. As of January 2018, there are over 900 work hours in this project, but once the entire park has received a once-over, it’s time to go back and start at the beginning. This is a labor of love and the organizers are immensely grateful to anyone who gives their time.
