Residents help clean up South End


ALBANY, N.Y. -- Residents in Albany's South End area are celebrating Earth Day one week later by cleaning up all around the neighborhood.

Both children and adults stepped up to help create new gardens, clean up the streets and vacant lots, and restore Rainbow Park. The park is the only place for kids to play since there is no community center in the area.

Cleaning up and painting Rainbow Park is one of a half dozen projects that neighbors and volunteers tackled on Saturday morning. Workshops were also held to learn about the environment.

At the end of the day, a celebration barbeque was held with music from local musicians.
