Auburn’s Seminary Park got a face lift Sunday afternoon thanks to some local landlords.
Members of the Cayuga County Landlords Association came together to clean up the playground area at Seminary Park, located at 72 Seymour St. They pulled weeds, cut the grass and put down a layer of mulch around the playground.
“It’s been a long time since anything has been done to this park,” said Cayuga County Landlords Association President Brett Tracy. “Good neighborhoods have resources for people, things that people need. Like here, you need someplace for kids to play. It was the perfect opportunity. There was already a park, it just needed someone to clean it up, make it decent again.”
Tracy said he and the rest of the association members have been wanting to do a project to benefit the community for some time. The association reached out to Chuck Mason, vice president of the Auburn Beautification Commission board, and Superintendent of Public Works Mike Talbot to get the project going.
