Thousands of volunteers will be lending a hand this weekend to create a park in just four hours, in honor of the City of Redland’s 125th Anniversary.

The City of Redlands, Redlands Service Club Council and the Mormon Helping Hands have partnered to fulfill the 25-year old dream of Heritage Park on Saturday, April 27 from 8 A.M. until noon.

The city purchased the property for the park just north of Barton Road back in 1988. Since then, the property has been untouched. Numerous schools, churches, and community organizations plan to help out with the project by laying paths, building fences and animal pens, and creating landscaping.

Improvements on the city’s historical landmarks, such as the 1901 Barton School House and the Asistencia Mission, will also take place. More information on the event can be found at www.redlandsservice.org
