Nicholl Park and the nearby Richmond Recreation Complex received a sprucing on Saturday thanks to volunteers taking part in Family Volunteer Day.
The event had been rescheduled a few weeks back due to poor air quality from the Northern California wildfires, but successfully occurred under clear blue skies from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Volunteers beautified the space around the Recreation building as well as Nicholl Park. Afterward, they were taught how to build a planter box with the Richmond Tool Library. They got to keep their personal planter box.
