(2:35) Cutillo Park recently received a Love Your Block mini grant for $1,200. This will be used over the summer to make improvements to the park including reducing the height of some of the fencing and adding more plants. There will also be park clean-up events.

The Friends of Cutillo Park‘s regular meetings are the last Wednesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. For now the meetings are held at the Nazzaro Center, but as the weather gets nicer they may move to the park.
