Volunteers help transform National City park

Posted: Updated:

NATIONAL CITY (CBS 8) - Hundreds of volunteers in National City will be busy over the next several days, transforming unused park and land into a new community gathering place.

Work got underway Thursday morning at National City's Butterfly Park near Palm Avenue and 20th Street. Volunteers are building a new public performance space in the shape of a butterfly wing, among the many new additions.

One of those volunteers is teenager Chris Barajas. His grandfather built a fountain that will be installed there. Chris is also lending a helping hand so that future generations can enjoy Butterfly Park.

"It's part of being a good citizen and something to do for my community. And you know, I can look back on this, show my son what I've done, show my family" he said.

Construction on the new community gathering space will be completed by Sunday.
