The garden was created in spring 2007 utilizing youth groups from Starfish, Howard Area Community Center and Family Matters. Additional help was given by the Howard Area Leadership Academy and neighborhood volunteers under the direction of Master Gardeners Dennis LoBue and Beata Welsh. The Triangle Park Garden Group recently received a grant from Parkways Foundation to purchase tools and equipment to continue their work in beautifying Triangle Park.

Congratulations to everyone!
