Thanks to the generous donations from Lafayette-Orinda Presbyterian Church (LOPC), HomeAid Northern California, Al Beltran owner of Pacific Coast Landscape, and Phil vanderToolen of vanderToolen Associates, the landscape project at Garden Park Apartments is complete. The beautiful grounds were unveiled at an Open House earlier this summer. The new landscaping and the launch of the Resident Monitor program have congruently empowered residents by increasing ownership of the community and self-sufficiency. Community ties have been strengthened not only with each other, but with the larger Pleasant Hill community. Thank you to the local businesses, faith communities, volunteers, and donors who made this stunning makeover a reality.
