The Women’s Club of Fullerton (WCOF) is taking on an ambitious project to rebuild a park that is in dire need of improvements, which has spurred individuals, businesses and other non-profit organizations to get involved. At first, WCOF Conservation Chair Linda Holman-Konieczny was interested in raising funds to plant some trees at Woodcrest Park, but after hearing the needs of Woodcrest community leaders at a meeting organized by Habitat for Humanity, it became apparent to her that the park needed more than just trees.
The park is connected to Woodcrest Elementary School. Habitat for Humanity and the Woodcrest community got a grant to erect a fence around the school because of unlawful activity taking place on school grounds at night. Before the fence was put up, parents would wake up early to clean up detritus and graffiti they didn’t want their school children to see. For more information, please call (714) 356-2798.
