MANCHESTER, NH – On June 28 the Rimmon Heights Neighborhood Group finished up a park cleanup at Notre Dame Park located on the southeast corner of McGregor Square on Manchester’s Westside.

In the spirit of community, 11 volunteers stepped up for the two-day project that included weeding, pruning, and mulching.

The materials were provided by the city. The Rimmon Heights Neighborhood Group has adopted several parks on the West Side and have been serving the community in park cleanups for 13 years.
