INDIANAPOLIS—As part of its Day of Caring, Cassidy Turley employees recently worked with Indy Parks to revamp Al Polin Park, located on the Near Northside of Indianapolis at 100 E. 29th Street.
“We estimate that 1,000 – 1,500 people use Al Polin Park each week,” said Allen McClendon, Indy Parks’ senior manager for community partnerships. “Between neighborhood kids, basketball tournaments, family cookouts and our Summer Supervised Program, the park is usually a pretty popular place. That’s why we’re especially thrilled to have Cassidy Turley help give this park a much-needed makeover.”
CertaPro Painters of Indianapolis donated supplies to repaint playground equipment, picnic tables and shelter areas. Mainscape Landscape Maintenance Services also provided 50 cubic yards of mulch so employees could weed and re-mulch around the park’s trees and perimeter.
In addition to volunteer hours, the company also paid for the installation of a new piece of playground equipment, as well as a new grill, concrete pouring for an ADA-accessible grill area and a fresh seal and coat for the high-use basketball court.
This is the second year the company has teamed up with Indy Parks. In 2011, Cassidy Turley devoted a Day of Caring to the beautification of Stringtown Park on the city’s Westside.
