Work has begun at Rol­off Park in Laguna Vista in a project that will give it a whole new look. This Sat­urday is tabbed as “Spruce Up Day” at the park and City Manager Rolando Vela is inviting everyone to come and be a part of this.

“We have already had people stopping by and telling us that it’s looking better,” he said, “and we are planning on a big day Saturday.”

The upgrades include replacing the park sign, repainting the restrooms, installing steel grills, ap­plying new mulch on the playground sets and ap­plying dirt to level the park grounds. Already the work has begun and Satur­day morning there will be plenty to do.

“We can use all of the help we can get,” said Vela, “we are hoping that everyone in the commu­nity can make it so that they can help be a part of something that they can enjoy.”

The public is asked to be at the park at 9 a.m. and the work is expected to last until 1 p.m.
