Dozens of volunteers help clean up Bay City park

BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

Dozens of volunteers cleaned up and revitalized a pair of popular Bay City parks this weekend. 

Steven Adair co-owns Edge Above the Rest, a company that specializes in landscaping. On Saturday, he and other volunteers put business aside and did what they said the community deserves.

Help Clean-Up Carroll Park is a volunteer initiative to help revitalize one of Bay City’s favorite parks. It all started when community activist C.J. Miller said he created a Facebook page to try and promote positivity throughout Bay City.

"One set of pictures were of Carroll Park. It got over 30,000 views within no time at all. People just pouring in love for Carroll Park,” Miller said.

That’s when Edge Above the Rest and over 50 volunteers stepped in to help clean up the park.

“Taking down a bunch of shrubs, fixing up the trees, cleaning out the pond and getting her spruced up,” James Deaton said.

Deaton is also a co-owner of Edge Above the Rest. He grew up coming to Caroll Park and said he hopes this process will help bring the park back to life.

"We just want to get out and try to make a change because it's kind of got ran down the last few years. This is a park that I grew up coming to and I remember there being animals and all kinds of stuff here and it's always been like an active place where people would come and it's just beautiful so we want to make it better,” he said.
