Volunteers clean up Fulton Park in Waterbury

WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH)– A Waterbury Park is a little cleaner tonight thanks to some volunteers.

Today was the 7th Fulton Park restoration clean-up. Volunteers came out to clear overgrowth from trees and picked up trash. They restored walls and staircases in the park. The park has lots to offer visitors and community members say it’s events like this that make it a place people want to spend time in.

“People who wouldn’t come to this park six years ago because of the overgrowth and the drugs and the prostitution now come here because they’ve taken ownership,” said MIchael Salvio, Waterbury Citizens Patrol.

Fulton park was designed by the same people who designed Central Park in New York City.
