Community members organize volunteer graffiti cleanup event for Central Riverside Park in Belding

Ashley McCreery and her 7-year-old nephew, Taiytum McCarty, were walking through Central Riverside Park in Belding a few weeks ago when they noticed a problem that could use some attention.

“He (Taiytum) was moaning to me the whole time as we were walking, saying that the park was ruined because someone had spray-painted nasty words everywhere,” McCreery told the Daily News. “We kept looking around and found that the place is just covered in glass. Someone had smashed bottles everywhere.”
