On Sunday, Dec. 1, residents of Belmont's Homeview Neighborhood completed a community garden in O’Donnell Park.  

"In conjunction with Belmont Park and Recreation and our neighborhood, the amazing youth of the 4H Club, led by Julien Levy,  planted eight fledgling fruit trees as a part of their Million Trees project. Thanks to newly-elected city councilman Eric Reed for his attendance, as well.

For our part, our neighborhood couldn’t have been happier with the amazing coordinated effort and the beautiful fruit trees planted.  We can wait to send our children up their branches to grab some fruit!" said Gina Latimerlo, president of Homeview Neighborhood Association.

My face is red, but where is O'Donnell Park. Near 280 or near 101?

No reason to be embarrassed Marianne! O'Donnell Park is located on the south side of Ralston Avenue between Old County Road and Hwy. 101. It is adjacent to the Homeview Neighborhood.

Thanks Joan, I can always count on you to answer my question. I have lived in Belmont since 1970 and have never been to (or known of) this park. I will make a point to drive by there soon. Happy Holidays!
