Building Blocks and One Well Brewing spruced up a neighborhood.

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A few Kalamazoo parks are now shining a little brighter after Building Blocks of Kalamazoo and One Well Brewing teamed up to help clean up some neighborhood areas.

The groups painted a swing at Verburg Park and picked up trash as part of the Summer Spruce Up event.

Organizers said the event is not just about keeping our community clean, but to enhance the quality of life in neighborhoods, one block at a time.

Building Blocks Executive Director Carrie Drake said, “We need to create the space that's safe, that's aesthetically pleasing, that's beautiful, that sort of facilitates, fosters and nurtures people being together, playing together, breaking down barriers together.”

Building blocks has helped over 1,500 households and neighborhoods make physical improvements on their homes and streets since 1995.
